Each Christmas, FPC provides gift boxes to 12 Wilson County Senior Citizens. These Seniors are identified through the Wilson County Sheriff’s SCAN program (Senior Citizen Action Network).
Each Senior is assigned an FPC Santa. This Santa purchases the items on the Senior’s wish list (robes, slippers, pet food, gloves, pillows, etc.).
In addition to Santas, there are also Elves. It is the job of the Elves to purchase 12 items from a list and place one in each box. For example, an elf may purchase 12 fingernail clippers, or 12 toothbrushes, or 12 pair of socks and give one to each Senior.
Around December 10, the filled boxes are taken to the Sheriff’s office to be delivered to the Seniors.
