Want to make

If you would like to make a difference during the upcoming holidays, consider contributing to the South Central Tennessee Development District’s Area Agency on Aging & Disability’s “Santa for a Senior or Person with a Disability Program”.

Last year, through support from people in the community like you, the AAAD was able to provide 118 individuals across our 13-county area with a Christmas, which not only included a needed gift item but also much-needed food and personal hygiene items.

People who will receive Christmas gifts are those that AAAD staff has identified as low-income and/or who have no family or other social support system during the holidays. You can be a “Santa” for someone in need by contacting the AAAD office by Nov. 22! It only takes $25 to adopt a person, but extra donations are always welcome to help purchase the extra food and household items needed. 

For more information, contact Kim Waldrum at 931-379-2938 or kwaldrum@sctdd.org, or Glenda Porterfield at 931-379-2941 or gporterfield@sctdd.org.
