The “Adopt A Senior” Program

Encourage local students through this special program!

 

by Johanna Vogt - May 21, 2020

Denise Route started the “Adopt A Senior” program in Tioga County. The program allows seniors to be celebrated and recognized despite the fact they are missing many of the milestones that seniors usually enjoy. The “adopters” do various acts of kindness for their adopted senior, such as: buying them gifts, sending a card, etc.

To become part of the “Adopt a Senior” program, people can search and join the Facebook group “ADOPT A SENIOR TIOGA COUNTY PA.” Parents, friends, and even seniors themselves are encouraged to post a bio and pictures of the senior. From there, Denise will pair the initial community members up with the senior of the individual’s choice on a particular post. The adopter can then reach out to the parent/senior. Adopters are allowed to adopt more than one senior, and seniors are allowed to be adopted by more than one adopter. If a senior has already been adopted, and another adopter wants to adopt him or her, the adopter can contact the parent/senior directly. If someone does not have a Facebook account, he or she is encouraged to ask someone who does have a Facebook account to message Denise. Denise will then post/comment on behalf of that individual. The program will most likely run until late June. 303 local seniors are posted and adopted, and there are 1,749 currently in the group. The Home Page Network tremendously encourages Tioga County to become a part of this beautiful program to bless the Class of 2020.
