Jacobson Hosting Annual Gift Drive For Bayside Residents

Published: November 25, 2015 by Susan Jacobs

JACOBSON FUNERAL HOME COLLECTING

DONATIONS FOR BAYSIDE VILLAGE

Jacobson Funeral Home in L’Anse is hosting its annual donation drive for residents of Bayside Village.  Susan Jacobs, owner of Jacobson Funeral Home is collecting donations to be given to Bayside Village for holiday gifts for their residents again this year.

The donations helped provide Christmas gifts for all the residents.  Some of the residents don’t have family in the area so these items help make them feel remembered during the Holidays.

“The holiday’s is a time of giving, and for those who have lost a loved one they may have an empty spot in their life for giving. This is one way to allow them to give in memory of their loved one who died, and it would benefit those who would enjoy receiving a gift this holiday season”, says Susan.

Sally Patovisti, activities director at Bayside Village suggests some of the following as needed items for the residents:  lotions, body wash, loose fitting socks, nonskid slippers, hair rollers, stationary, candy, electric tooth brushes, hats, gloves, after shave, deodorant, wallets, lap blankets, costume jewelry, craft supplies, colored pencils, and markers.  There are about 10 men and 49 women that are currently residents at Bayside Village.

Jacobson Funeral Home will be accepting donations up until the Holiday Remembrance Open House, which will be held on Friday, December 18th from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m at the funeral home.

If you are unable to attend on December 18th, and want to make a donation they may be dropped off at Jacobson Funeral Home prior.  All donations will be greatly received by the residents of Bayside Village.  If you have questions you may contact Susan at Jacobson Funeral Home at 524-7800 or www.jacobsonfuneralhome.com.
