The holiday seasons can be quite lonely. They can be even lonelier for the older generations. This is why groups go to retirement homes to sing Christmas carols and this is why Cedar Valley Iowa Realty in New Hampton puts on ‘Presents for Residents’ where during normal years they bring soaps, body washes, shampoos, decks of cars, and socks as gifts to the homes.
Danielle Timessen of Cedar Valley Iowa Realty says this year – of course – will need to operate differently.
The plan is to buy at least two iPads for each New Hampton retirement home and deliver them on the Tuesday before Christmas.
Timessen says the office will miss walking the halls of the homes spreading joy – but that adapting and pivoting is important given this year’s circumstances.
To donate money towards these iPads call the Cedar Valley Iowa Realty office in New Hampton at 641-394-3071.
