Operation Holiday Hearts

The holidays can be a particularly lonely time of year for seniors. The Heart of Ida delivers hope and joy throughout the season via Operation Holiday Hearts program.

Through sponsorship, donations, and Amazon Wish List contributions, The Heart of Ida collects new personal hygiene items and packages them in festive holiday gift bags, capped with handmade holiday cards created by local school children.

The gifts, often the only seniors will receive, are distributed Heart of Ida volunteers, providing not only much-needed personal care items but desperately-needed personal contact as well.
