READING, Pa. –“It’s better to give than receive” and Manor at Market Square knows just how true that phrase can be, especially, this time of year.
On Tuesday, Dec. 4, representatives from the senior community, located on Penn Street in downtown Reading, presented Jim Youndt, Berks Encore Reading center manager, with a barrel full of donated items, including hats, gloves, socks, scarves and throw blankets. The collection will be distributed to local seniors to help keep them warm during the winter months.
“We are grateful to our residents, their families, guests and staff members who donated items and took the time to create items. They are the ones who helped make this winter drive a success,” said Heather Zimmerman, marketing director at Manor at Market Square.
That same day, representatives delivered snack bags to the Reading Dialysis Clinic in Wyomissing. Over 85 snack bags filled with various goodies, including juice boxes were distributed to patients.
“It was heart warming to see the smiles on their faces,” said Zimmerman. “Being able to lift the spirits of those needing it most is what this time of year is all about.”
