‘Santa to a Senior’ drive launches

The Ridgecrest Area Association of Realtors once again launches its “Santa to a Senior” drive, which collects gift donations for local seniors who are lonely, isolated or financially challenged this holiday season.

Traditionally RAAR receives hundreds of requests for contributions for seniors at Bella Sera, Ridgecrest Regional Hospital and High Desert Haven. Requests include items like slippers, scarves, gloves, blankets, lotion, toiletries, pens, stationary, gift cards, warm clothing, puzzles and more.

Anyone wanting to contribute can visit the Giving Tree at the RAAR office, located at 995 N. Norma St,. on Tuesday, Dec. 3. After choosing a recipient, each donor should deliver wrapped gifts to the RAAR office by Dec. 16.

For more information call 760-499-1098.
