For more than 20 years Lima Memorial Health System has partnered with Area Agency on Aging 3 to buy gifts for its Senior "Angels", senior citizens who are in need. 

Each year Lima Memorial employees pick a tag assigned with a Senior Angel and buy the requested gifts. Those gifts included microwaves, gift cards, gas cards, clothing, and cleaning goods. Organizers said the Senior "Angels" program is important because it shows them that they are not forgotten.

"This is just something that Lima Memorial Health System enjoys doing," said Janis Daley, Lima Memorial volunteer coordinator. "We want to let them know that they are respected and thought about and cared about during this time and during this season. I think it makes them feel a little bit more warmth knowing that they got something and they’re not by themselves really. They have us as their family."

Mercy Health- St. Rita's Medical Center has also partnered with Area Agency on Aging for the Senior "Angels" program. The gifts will be delivered to the seniors by their caseworker before Christmas.
