Elderly people need love and attention too

Posted: Updated:

A local group is working to help others in Vanderburgh County.

Voices, an advocacy group for more than 1,500 Vanderburgh County Seniors, has kicked off a 'Pajama Drive.'

Employees say simple things like shampoo and clothes may be easy to grab at the store, bur for some, they're real luxuries.

"For these people who many not have people visiting them or many not have family around that can give them the extra things, it means everything to them," says Allison Nicholson, with Voices. "They get so excited about just little gifts and just being appreciated."

Voices is now accepting all sizes of pajamas for both men and women.

They're accepting donations through March 11.
