Interfaith Ministries of Denton, Inc. provides emergency basic needs assistance to residents of northern Denton County with the goal of helping them become self-sufficient. In October, VISTA member Nico Meyering coordinated promotion of a brand new program called Santa Loves Seniors.
A collaboration between Interfaith and the Denton-area Meals on Wheels program, Santa Loves Seniors will provide holiday gift baskets for 25 Denton-area homebound senior citizens in its inaugural year. Nico created emails and blog posts introducing the program to Interfaith Ministries’ supporters and calling for donated goods for the gift baskets. He even crafted a logo for the new initiative.
Interfaith Ministries of Denton, Inc. is a partner agency of the AmeriCorps VISTA North Texas Project.
