As managers for a senior citizen apartment building here in Bluffton, my wife and I are often approached by various organizations interested in helping out, or wondering what donations could be made to support our residents.

Of course we are always grateful for the interaction (as are our residents), and we normally direct these groups to some recurring effort such as Bingo, or food donations.
