A small gift

60% of Nursing home residents do not have regular visitors.

Here to help

A combination of longer life spans and spiraling health care costs have left an estimated 64% of Americans in Nursing Homes dependent on Medicaid.
– New York Times June 2017

A good cause

50% of our Nursing Home residents do not have any close relatives. Some of our residents are in their nineties and all of their friends and family are deceased.

Donate PJs, make a day better

Personal Needs allowance in Texas for Medicaid Nursing Home Residents is only $60 per month. This covers haircuts, clothing, favored brand hygiene products, toiletry items, multivitamins, snacks, even birthday cards to send to family members. When a set of pajamas is $20, that is considered a luxury not a necessity. And transportation to a Walmart or drug store is cost prohibited.

“There is nothing more special to me than receiving my new pair of warm pajamas each Winter”

“This made my day. Thank you so much! I haven’t had new pajamas in years.”

– Beverly Mae, Nursing Home Resident in Dallas

“Many of our new residents arrive from the county hospital with absolutely no belongings, wearing only a hospital gown.”
