Each year Hope Hospice collects apparel to distribute to area nursing homes to help keep St. Louis area senior citizens warm during winter. The 2014 Heating Up For Seniors collection drive will find Hope Hospice staff and volunteers accepting donations Saturday, December 6, 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at Syberg’s on Dorsett and Helen Fitzgerald’s on Lindbergh.
Items most needed include gloves, hats, scarves, lap blankets, sweatshirts, socks and other warm apparel. (Items may also be dropped off at collection boxes which are set up now at all Syberg’s locations including Downtown, Affton, Chesterfied, O’Fallon [Illinois], as well as Dorsett and Helen Fitzgerarld’s.)
The Hope Hospice team will also accept cash donations Saturday evening and will hold 50/50 drawings to raise money for more warm apparel.
Both locations feature live bands on Saturday nights and lively crowds. They are fun venues to enjoy good things to eat (such as Syberg’s Wings, shown below) and drink.
Last year, we were visited by Fredbird!
We invite you to join the Hope Hospice team Saturday evening, December 6, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Syberg’s at 2430 Old Dorsett Road in Maryland Heights and at Helen Fitzgerald’s at 3650 South Lindbergh in Sunset Hills.
Thank you in advance for your support of our 2014 Heating Up For Seniors collection drive. And thanks to Syberg’s for their great support.
