Kiwanians give Easter goodies to area seniors

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro began a friendship with residents at Presbyterian Apartments through the Adopt-a-Senior Program, begun by administrator Dana Flanders in the spring of 2020. When COVID hit and restrictions were put in place, Flanders wanted to have a way for the residents to not feel alone and abandoned. Seventeen members of the Kiwanis Club agreed with Flanders and began anonymously delivering gifts, magazines, cards, and books to their adoptees.

To celebrate this Easter and touch the lives of all 50 residents, club members donated Easter grass, candy, snacks, books, and magazines. President Dianna Wedincamp donated 50 Easter baskets which Petite Garrett and Wanda Ellis filled. Delivery to Presbyterian Apartments was made on Good Friday, and those members delivering the baskets were Jane Durden, Petite Garrett, and Wanda Ellis.
