FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — DEC 5, 2012 –

Visit the Raley’s supermarket this weekend, and volunteers from River City High School will help you brighten the holidays for a local senior citizen.

The “senior gift program” is sponsored by the West Sacramento Rotary Club, reports the Rotary’s Charyl Silva.

Seniors at the Eskaton Woodrow Wilson Manor in West Sacramento, and those served by the local senior center or Meals on Wheels program, have been invited to sign up to receive a gift. Those interested put their name and gift request on a card.

This weekend from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, volunteers from River City High School (coordinated by the students’ Interact Club) will be at Raley’s with the gift requests. Shoppers will be invited to fulfill a gift request for a local senior.

“We then wrap the gift with love, and later deliver the gifts,” said Silva.

The Interact Club is also arranging some Christmas carol singing for the event, and for a possible side trip to the senior citizens at Eskaton.

You may also contribute to the gift program by calling Silva at 372-8383.
