WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — My Neighbor’s Keeper is hosting its 6th annual Adopt-A-Senior drive.

From Monday, Nov. 14, through Friday, Dec. 9, you can give a gift to a senior who might not otherwise receive one.

“Seniors selected as gift recipients through Adopt-A-Senior, typically do not have visitors, family or friends, and would benefit from the items on their wish list,” My Neighbor’s Keeper says.

To Adopt-A-Senior locally:

  1. Stop by Weigand-Omega Management’s home office, 333 S. Broadway Ave, or another Weigand-Omega Management location
  2. Select an Adopt-A-Senior gift tag from the tree, check it out with reception and take it with you
  3. Shop for the item(s) on your tag and return it wrapped to the Weigand-Omega Management location you picked up your tag from by Friday, Dec. 9
    • My Neighbor’s Keeper asks you to please secure the original gift tag to the package(s)

To give a gift without adopting a specific senior nationally, you can donate an item from My Neighbor’s Keeper’s general gift registry or donate a gift card from Wal-Mart, Target or Amazon.
