Nonprofit seeks support in providing gifts to nursing facility


The Sunflower Studio has announced its inaugural Mammy and Pappy program.

The Seymour-based nonprofit organization is working closely with Lutheran Community Home in Seymour to provide the best Christmas possible for the residents.

The nursing facility has 155 residents and 175 staff members, and Amy Jackson with The Sunflower Studio said her goal is to get a gift to every resident by Dec. 11.

The top requests for gifts are decorational items for residents’ rooms and anything else to brighten their day, including books, puzzle books and blankets. Candles are not allowed.

Anyone interested in sponsoring a “grandparent” or anyone who works at a business that would like to help raise funds and gifts should reach out to Jackson via Facebook or join The Sunflower Studio’s Facebook group and send a message there.

Jackson also is working to get small goody bags made for the staff members.

“The staff has worked super hard at keeping our loved ones safe, and they are heroes in my eyes,” Jackson said.

In addition to the gifts, Jackson also will need Christmas gift bags, tissue paper, candies and candy canes.

“I look forward to seeing how big we can make this and how much joy we can spread,” she said. “Stay safe and be kind.”

The Sunflower Studio also collects food and monetary donations in order to deliver weekend food packs to local kids.
