Secret Pals

All of the seniors in our Senior Citizen Project are eligible to have a Secret Pal.  A Secret Pal provides special, small gifts on a monthly basis to put a little extra joy into the life of a struggling senior. Some examples of gifts include candles, picture frames, stamps, stationery, lotions, shower gels, crossword puzzle books, puzzles, blankets, plants, and gift cards. The gifts are either dropped off or mailed to our Carol Stream center and are delivered to the seniors by their “delivery day driver” along with monthly grocery delivery.

Pals usually spend between $5 and $25 per month.

A Thank you from a senior

“Dear Secret Pal, Thank you for your generous gift card – I did a good shopping at Aldi store. You don’t know how much I appreciate your kindness.  Now I have coffee, bacon, butter, blueberries and things I don’t get too often.  Thank You! Thanks You! It was a joy to shop without counting pennies.”  - Leone
