Hundreds of volunteers converged on the Pine Avenue Community Park this morning (December 24, 2010) at 10 AM to take part in the Fourth Annual Roses For Our Senior Friends project.

Christmas is a time for family and friends, notoriously for kids. Unfortunately, many of our seniors spend the holidays alone and bored. In an effort to alleviate feelings of loneliness and spread a little holiday cheer, Roses for Our Senior Friends was created. . . What began as a father and daughter delivering roses to seniors on Christmas Eve in 2004, has blossomed into a large-scale volunteer event.

Today, participants will deliver 2,500 roses to senior citizens at more than 20 different facilities from Carlsbad to Escondido. Merry Christmas, indeed. Click the link for more info on facebook.
