Charitable organization gives seniors Christmas gifts

Nov 25, 2014

TORONTO – For more than a decade, Jill Harrington and her team of volunteers at Children of Christmas Past, have been making Christmas morning brighter for the young at heart.“Children of Christmas Past is a program I started for seniors alone at Christmas,” said Harrington, the founder of the organization.

Harrington got the idea for the organization in 1999 when she was visiting a long-term care facility and noticed seniors outside their rooms all dressed up. When she asked why, the answer she received was heartbreaking; they’re hoping for visitors that would never come.
