    HI Sweet Jen !! Hon it's amazing how many HATE the holidays because of horrible memories, family garbage etc, and many who literally have no one left. As you know I live in a high rise. We have people of all ages, with a pretty good amount of elderly. Hey we are centrally located for the shopping center and all else right here !! So yeah if one can't drive etc, they try to get into here. There's quite the waiting list ! ODD ! Hon, I know you are doing what you can to help the kids out. Here's a different idea,, for next year. Is there a food kitchen for those who aren't able to afford a meal so your family can help to serve, entertain these ones? I know quite a few of the elderly ones here,, though they can afford food, go to these places. Or how about the "adopt" a family and ask them over for food and simple gifts (need NOT be expensive ! Often it's just the thought)? There are soo MANY things which can be done. If you have any nursing homes,,, they LOVE to have visitors in. I did this for quite sometime. I had my regulars who had NO one to come i I did not correct them,, often they thought I was their D, Moms, Aunts, friends, co workers the list goes on and on. The point wasn't for "ME" as it was FOR THEM. I DID enjoy it quite a bit !! I'd just sit there,, sit with them, for some I'd hold their hands,, some even putting on a lotion. It doesn't matter hon where you go,, what you do, any type of volunteering will set the little ones (hmmm they are probably getting BIG by now !) on the road to be loving,, sharing and to realize how fortunate they are,,, for life.
