Recreation Fund

Christmas Fund

Our staff works hard to meet our residents' needs. Donations made to this account ensures that no resident is left out because of their inability to pay. This account is used for recreational costs and resident niceties. All funds in this account directly benefit individual and group resident needs.

Some of the ways funds in this account are used:

  1. Admission for off-campus recreational outings (zoos, movies, sporting events, museums)
  2. Bowling program
  3. Gardening program
  4. On-campus entertainment (hypnotists, magicians, and comedians)
  5. Resident niceties (stamps, clothing, and phone cards)

The Christmas season is a magical time of the year, however, this joyous time of year can often leave the elderly feeling lonely and isolated. Our goal every day, but especially during the holiday season, is to make every resident feel cared about and included.  

Every year the Iowa Veterans Home purchases Christmas gifts for each of our residents with contributions received from this fund.  Each resident is given a list of gift choices, and they are able to create their very own Christmas wishlist. Once the lists are gathered, the IVH elves do their magic, and gifts are presented to the residents at their unit holiday parties. It brings a little more holiday spirit to our residents, especially those who may not have family or regular visitors.
