Crusade4Hope has completed its fifth “We Just Love Our Seniors” campaign in time for the holidays.

As a result of community support, 53 residents of need at MeadowView Terrace in Clarksville, Chase City Health and Rehab Center in Chase City and The Hundley Center in South Hill have received gift bags. Veronica Everette’, founder of this charity-based organization, started this campaign as a way of showing the residents that the community loves them and cares about their well-being.

After five years, the organization continues to be amazed at the amount of support the community continues to show this great cause. To that end, Everette’ extends a hearty “thank you” to the community for its support. “We couldn’t have done it without the love, kindness, and generosity of the community.”

Drop boxes were placed in the local libraries and the YMCAs in Clarksville and Chase City for area residents to bring in donated items. The community responded by providing requested toiletries that the residents use daily; items such as facial tissue, body wash, deodorant, soap, lotion, socks, and mouth wash.

This year, Crusade4Hope was fortunate to partner with the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Southside Virginia. This organization provides unselfish support to many causes in the area.

Thanks are extended to local libraries and YMCAs for their support. And also to Cynthia Lewis, Tarasha Pettaway, and Derrick Downey of Buffalo Junction.

Although this campaign is completed for this year, we need to be reminded that our seniors often feel forgotten and our generosity should continue throughout the year. Each citizen is encouraged to visit seniors in the local senior living facilities, continue to donate personal toiletries and support various causes for our senior residents. Through our continued support, our community can grow stronger and happier together.
