Tribune Gifts

By the end of the annual gift drive for residents of area nursing homes and care centers, most areas of the Lewiston Tribune are filled with gifts, as they were in December 2011. Tribune staffers gather the donated gifts in preparation for the Wilks and Smith families to pick the gifts up at the end of the week.

Tribune readers can help fulfill the wishes of 212 residents of area nursing homes and adult family homes this holiday season.

Helen Wilks and Ellen Smith, sisters who live in Lewiston, and their families, in cooperation with the Lewiston Tribune, sponsor an annual drive to obtain Christmas gifts for residents in need. They ask Tribune readers to adopt one or more of these residents for the holidays. This is the 33rd year they have worked together on this project.

Anyone wishing to give a gift may select a name and gift from the numbered list below and bring it to the Lewiston Tribune Classified Advertising Department between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. weekdays. The gifts must be new and must be received at the Tribune by 5 p.m. Dec. 18.

The Tribune office is at 505 Capital St. in downtown Lewiston.

Each gift should be wrapped and tagged with the name of the recipient, the recipient’s number and the item enclosed. A separate tag should include the recipient’s name, number and the donor’s name. Wilks estimates everyone on this wish list receives at least five gifts.

The Wilks and Smith families will pick up the gifts from the Tribune and distribute them to the recipients before Christmas.
