"The senior citizens at Lindsay Place Apartments need your help." That's the word from Matt Shelton of Calvary Baptist Church.
The residents of Lindsay Place live in one-room apartments with little space for big crowds. They have access to a large community room, but on nice days they often sit outside in front of an apartment to visit and get some fresh air.
Donations are now being collected to build them a handicap-accessible pavilion to sit under and enjoy the weather and the company of family and friends.
According to Mr. Shelton, his Care Group at Calvary Baptist Church has gotten estimates and has plans already drawn up.
“Once built, this pavilion will be around for generations to come,” Mr. Shelton continued. "Existing picnic tables will be set there and will make it an even more enjoyable space."
All money donated will be used solely for this project, and a tax-deductible donation letter will be provided upon request.
Donations may be mailed or hand-delivered to Calvary Baptist Church at 410 W. Chickasaw Street, Lindsay, OK 73052. Checks may be made payable to Calvary Baptist Church, with “Pavilion” or “Lindsay Place” on the memo part of the check.
“Thank you for always taking care of Lindsay’s senior citizens,” Mr. Shelton continued.
