LIMA – On Tuesday, dozens of volunteers helped load hundreds of gifts onto an R.T.A. bus that will be making special deliveries to 100 senior citizens in the region. The Lima Memorial Health System family adopts hundreds of senior citizens each year for its annual ‘Senior Angel Tree’ event in partnership with the Area Agency on Aging. The partnership allows Lima Memorial to extend its Community of Care to seniors who live on limited means and are often without family support. For many, their holiday wish list consists of gifts that meet their most basic needs.
