COOKIES FOR COPS
With all of the negativity being shown toward police officers and law enforcement officials, we thought a great way to show our support was our very first COOKIES FOR COPS program. SCHI members baked over 2,000 cookies for this program!! It was truly a heart-felt time to give these to our wonderful Police Department.
ACTION DURING TRAGEDY
In addition, when tragedy stuck the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and our neighbors in Gatlinburg were in need, Senior Citizens Center of Hendersonville served as a drop-off and collection point for items to send to Gatlinburg. Cots, clothing, toiletries, coloring books & crayons, small toys, cleaning products and supplies and so many other items were donated from our members, as well as members of our community and with a little help from our friends, were hand-delivered to our neighbors in need. We even coerced Academy Sports into helping with a donation of socks and a great price on the cots!
