The December Holiday Gathering

The December meeting is typically a holiday gathering held in early December at a large retirement community, hospital or other large organization. The Chapters usually organize some type of drive for gifts or donations for low income seniors. One year it was a drive to collect wrapping paper and bows, while another year it was for $15 to $25 value gift cards from grocery stores or Walmart. These items are then given to non-profits that serve low income seniors. Often the non-profit recipients are coalition members. The decision on the recipients is made by the Presidents of the Chapters.

In 2018, the Chapters decided to hold the holiday party on Colorado Gives Day and it was a morning event. At the event, the Denver Senior Coalitions gave away the JCAF funds to non-profit members of the Denver Senior Coalitions who had applied for the funds.
