JACOBSON FUNERAL HOME COLLECTING

DONATIONS FOR BAYSIDE VILLAGE

 

Jacobson Funeral Home in L’Anse is hosting their 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.

Bayside Village’s activity director, Debbie Merrill, mentioned that the donations helped provide Christmas gifts for all the residents.  There are about 15 men and 36 women that currently reside at Bayside Village. Some of the residents don’t have family in the area so these items help make them feel remembered during the Holidays.

“Holiday time brings about memories and traditions, which can be overwhelming for some.  Presenting an opportunity to gift give in memory of a loved one can help fill that empty feeling this time of year. The residents of Bayside enjoy receiving the gifts, it makes them feel remembered and cared about,” says Susan Jacobs.

Some suggestions are:  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.

Jacobson Funeral Home will be accepting donations up until the Holiday Remembrance Open House, which will be held on Friday, December 14th from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

If you are unable to attend on December 14th and want to donate, 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.
