LJF Marketing Donates To Interfaith Seniors

Continuing a tradition started over five years ago, LJF Marketing helps to make the holidays brighter and keep seniors warm during the winter season with a donation of over 40 throws to Interfaith of The Woodlands’ Gifts for Seniors program.

“It breaks my heart to think about the many seniors who have no one to be with over the holidays,” noted Linda Freede, president of LJF Marketing. “Families are so spread out and it is often difficult to be together. I would want someone to bring a smile to my mom’s face if I was not available. She is always chilly, so I know that these throws will be much appreciated!”

To learn more about Interfaith’s Gifts for Seniors program, email Amanda Badnek at abadnek@woodlandsinterfaith.org.
