Volunteers deliver care packages to seniorsPosted: Updated:
Dozens of Westchester residents spent their Sunday going door-to-door for a good cause.
Volunteers made care packages to be delivered to 70 home-bound seniors isolated this winter by the cold weather.
The hub for the project by Dorot Distribution was at Westchester Reform Temple in Scarsdale.
"It's a way to connect generations. It's a way to connect kids with grandparents. It's a way to connect the generation in between with the elderly," says Cippi Harte, of Dorot Distribution.
Organizers say that although seniors like the care packages they receive, the chance for human connection is what they appreciate the most.
"The seniors are very happy to have the interaction," Harte says. "They're very happy to tell stories. They're very happy to tell you who's in various photographs. They're very happy to tell you about their grandchildren, about their activities and their interests and it's wonderful."
