While everyone was waiting in line for the best Black Friday deal or glued to their computer to take advantage of Cyber Monday deals, the Harris County Guardianship Program has been asking the community to assist in collecting the ultimate fossil – an AM/FM radio! The Guardianship Program serves as the legal guardian for more than 1,200 indigent seniors and adults with mental, physical and developmental challenges who may often be alone and forgotten during the holidays. Many of these clients are seniors who raised families or veterans who served our country, but now find themselves alone.
Studies show that music has many healing benefits. It has the power to completely change someone’s mood, assist with memory recall, and even help restore and improve overall health. This holiday season the Harris County program aims to supply every senior and vulnerable adult under their care with a new portable radio to help restore their gleeful holiday spirit. So far we have received 700 radios from generous donors but we are still in need of 500 more donations. Portable radios and monetary donations can be made through Tuesday, December 5, 2017 by contacting Melva Parker at (713) 363-2349 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
