Woman would like domestic supplies replenished
At 83, Ms. K. has been around long enough to acquire kitchen appliances, meet her clothing needs and various items it takes to operate a household.
A widow living only on Social Security, she finds it difficult to replenish supplies that are disposable or need refilling.
Her Social Security check is spent on rent, food, utilities, diabetic supplies and medicine for her diabetes.
Toilet paper, paper towels, Cheer laundry detergent, fabric softener and Clorox bleach are items she'd like for Christmas. Ms. K likes to keep her house and clothes clean, but it's difficult to include some of the items on her shopping list when her resources are limited.
A gift certificate to Food Giant, Schnucks or Park Pharmacy would also be handy for this elderly woman.
Donations will be accepted through Tuesday.
For those interested in contributing to Christmas for the Elderly, gifts may be delivered to the Southeast Missourian office or area locations. Cash contributions are also welcome. All contributions are tax-deductible and may be mailed to Christmas for the Elderly, P.O. Box 4, Cape Girardeau, Mo. 63702-0004.
