Members of Mesa Sunrise Rotary, as part of Rotary Week of Service, recently created gift bags for the residents at Christian Care Cottonwood Assisted Living.

The community is on the Arizona Long Term Care System, the state’s Medicaid program that provides long-term care services, at little or no cost, to financially and medically eligible Arizona residents who are 62 or older, blind, disabled and need ongoing services at a higher level of care, according to a release.

“Many of our residents don’t have family or friends nearby, so these gift bags are not only a blessing to our seniors but also a fun surprise to brighten their day,” Kim Sanders, manager of Christian Care Cottonwood Assisted Living, said in the release. “We are so grateful for the generosity and big hearts of the Mesa Sunrise Rotary members.”

During the April 21 Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club meeting at Apache Wells Country Club, members filled the bags with everyday necessities such as hand sanitizer and socks as well as items like note cards, stickers, pens and pencils, candy, puzzles, and even specific requested items such as shoes, yarn for knitting and puzzles. The club’s goal was to fill 17 bags with personalized notes from Rotarians.
