DuPage Convalescent Center Encourages Community to “Adopt-a-Resident” for the Holidays

The DuPage Convalescent Center invites the community to help make the holidays brighter for each of the Center’s residents through participating in the annual gift drive. 
 
Resident gift requests average $50 in value and include items such as personal care products, gift cards and clothing. Donations should be dropped off at the Center by Friday, Dec. 11, so that they can be prepared for distribution at the Annual Family Holiday Party.  
 
Anyone interested in “Adopting a Resident” this holiday season should call the Volunteer Office at (630) 784-4260.  
 
Other ways to help the center’s residents is to donate to the general wish list, make a financial contribution to the holiday fund or create handmade holiday cards or crafts. 
 
Community groups are also invited to sing holiday carols and to support one of the many holiday events at the Center.
 
For more information, visit www.dupageco.org/convo, e-mail Barbara.Kolton@dupageco.org or call (630) 784-4260. Donations may be dropped off at the reception desk between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. Monetary donations may be made online at www.dupageco.org/dpccfoundation or via checks made payable to the DuPage Convalescent Center Foundation and mailed to 400 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton, Illinois 60187.
