To register or for more information, contact Vonya Gresham at vgresham@hosparus.org or 812-542-2809.  

Volunteers help with patient and family support, administrative duties and development/fundraising. Hosparus carefully selects volunteers and provides them with comprehensive training specially designed to meet the needs of patients and families. Hosparus volunteers must have available transportation and complete training and an application process.

Program gets gifts for seniors

Be a Santa to a Senior, the popular campaign that in nine years delivered thousands of gifts to local needy seniors, is being planned again this holiday season as older adults continue to face poverty and loneliness.

The area office of the Home Instead Senior Care network is joining Pleasant Ridge Elementary, Jonathan Jennings Elementary in Charlestown and Walmart to provide gifts and companionship to seniors who otherwise might not receive either.

People can pick up ornaments with the first names of seniors and their gift requests from Christmas trees, which will be up at the Walmart stores located at 2910 Grant Line Road, New Albany, and 1351 Veterans Pkwy., Clarksville, from Nov. 15 through Dec. 10. Buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornaments attached. Hundreds of the presents will be placed into gift bags decorated by the schools.

For more information about the program, visit beasantatoasenior.com or call 502-448-1511 or 812-948-9770.

Brain injury group to meet

The November meeting of the Southern Indiana Traumatic Brain Injury Foundation will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, in the Education Conference Room at Southern Indiana Rehab Hospital, 3401 Blackiston Blvd., New Albany.

All survivors, family, friends or anyone else that has an interest are invited to attend. For more information call 502-819-2542.
