DBF organizes an annual food basket drive for the elderly shut-ins in our community. From various donors, he gets a canned ham and all the trimmings, plus a fruit basket. He also calls upon people to donate homemade cookies, which he divides up among the recipients and packages. I thought it would be nice to see if I could get a few retail stores to kick in non-food items to go in the baskets. The only problem is, I have no idea what homebound seniors might want or need! The only items I came up with, off the top of my head, were vitamins, buffered aspirin, warm socks, and perhaps a book of crossword or similar puzzles. I thought I'd have better luck if I asked the stores for specific items (or gave them a list of suggested items). So ... what else?!
