Adopt a Harlem grandparent this holiday season

A reader from the Upper Westside shared information about how there is a Mary Kay unit that is adopting residents at a local Harlem senior housing facility, Wyatt Tee Walker Senior Housing on 2177 Frederick Douglass Blvd. They are adopting Harlem senior residents to help make the holidays special for a group that are the most forgotten, seniors.

The Mary Kay unit is asking Harlem businesses and locals to help with this project by adopting a grandparent this holiday. A $15 donation or more will sponsor a special gift for one Harlem senior resident and enable them to have a Happy Holiday Season. Your business card or name will be attached to the gift so they will know that it is a gift from a Harlemite and your business.

Go here to make a donation. If you are interested to learn more about this program offline, contact Lauren Wells at
