Since 2005, Linda Blanchette and friends have been collecting Halloween candy and treats in Sea Trail for attendees and residents of our nursing homes/rehab centers and senior centers. The treats are used to encourage a little extra effort in the therapy room, a treat at movie time or a little something at night. To beat last year’s collection of 500 pounds, your donation of candies, cookies, pretzels would be greatly appreciated. The collection will take place for the entire month of October. On November 1st all donations are divided up and delivered to Autumn Care, Shallotte Senior Center and they distribute to other local Senior Centers and the homebound, Meals on Wheels, Arbor Landing, Universal Health Care, New Haven in Little River, Brunswick Health and Rehab Center and Compass Pointe. A few new facilities may be added this year. If you have a recommendation, please call Linda at 910-575-8454.
There will be containers on porches/near garage for your donations at the following homes:
Bonnie and Doc Doughtery – 730 Surrey Court
Sharon and John Markatos – 310 Crooked Gulley Circle
Linda and Ray Blanchette – 801 Bermuda Walk
