Every year Community Services organizes a gift-giving event for Orange resident families and elderly in need. The identities of the recipients are kept confidential for their privacy.

They are asking Orange residents to adopt one of the registered families/elderly residents or to donate whatever they can.

The families that participate are asked to send the Community Services Office wish lists from their children to help sponsors with ideas for gift giving, whether it’s a toy, clothing, and a book or gift card.

Organizers also request grocery gift cards for perishable items and decorated food baskets, containers, boxes, bags, etc. for our residents to help them with their food needs.
