Light Up the Holidays
Nothing is lonelier than a holiday without anything special. COVID-19 continues to impact older adults and people with disabilities through isolation.
Light Up the Holidays originated in 2016 with the goal of connecting DAS clients with gift sponsors so everyone receives something during the holiday season.
How can you help?
Sponsor a client! Clients are adults under guardianship, many of whom are residents of long-term care communities, have low incomes and no family or friends.
What is the next step?
Email the Division’s Gift Drive Coordinator expressing your interest. Wish list or Amazon gift list are available.
Once you have received information on what to buy for a client, review the wish list and the gift giving guidance and then shop!
Mail or schedule a contactless drop off for your gifts with us by Nov. 12 in Atlanta. We’ll get them to the client in time for the holidays.
Help us make this season brighter for older adults and people with disabilities. Your generosity will make a difference in someone’s life.
