Peninsula Volunteers’ Little House and the Menlo Park Senior Center collaborated on a Gift of Warmth project this December. New or used jackets and sweaters were collected, gift wrapped at Little House, and delivered to the Menlo Park Senior Center where they were distributed to the seniors in need.

The gift collection had something for everyone and included long coats, fuzzy sweaters, rain gear, and men’s parka jackets. On Dec. 17, 2015, gifts were distributed to the seniors at the Menlo Park Senior Center’s annual holiday luncheon. Over 120 seniors attended, including Santa! This was a new and fantastic collaboration with Little House, and the City looks forward to continued collaborations between the two centers.
