Annual Christmas wish list for seniors is here

The annual Tribune and Wilks/Smith family gift drive for seniors fills the newspaper's downtown Lewiston office with gifts this time of year.

In a tradition that spans more than three decades, Tribune readers can help fulfill the wishes of 220 residents of area nursing homes and adult family homes this holiday season.

Helen Wilks and Ellen Smith, sisters who are longtime Lewiston residents, and their families, in cooperation with the Lewiston Tribune, sponsor an annual drive to obtain gifts for residents in need. They ask Tribune readers to adopt one or more of these residents for the holidays. This will be the 36th 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 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. The gifts must be new and must be received at the Tribune by 5 p.m. Dec. 21.

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 the wish list receives at least five gifts.

The Wilks and Smith families will pick up the gifts from the Tribune, organize and distribute them to the nursing home residents before Christmas.
