Holiday Gift Program

ElderTLC acquires gifts such as blankets, clothing, and personal care items and distributes them to low-income residents in senior care facilities and organizations. These gifts are distributed at no charge, once a year during the holidays, but ElderTLC volunteers work year-round to carry out our mission. In 2022, we were pleased to distribute gifts to 6465 residents in 87 senior care facilities and organizations, including several Native Nations elderly service programs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

ElderTLC believes that a gift reminds residents served by senior care facilities and organizations that their community remembers them and cares. After the first year of distributing gifts, ElderTLC learned that the need among low-income seniors is great and set the goal of distributing 5000 gifts by year five, 2021. We surpassed that goal in 2021 and currently provide over 6500 gifts to elderly in-need. ElderTLC also involves local volunteers to help with their Holiday Pop Up Shop strengthening the sense of community and helping their own neighbors. ElderTLC aims to someday be able to give a gift to every low-income senior is a care facility that might not otherwise receive a gift bringing joy to them during the holidays.

ElderTLC builds its inventory year-round through shopping clearance sales and donations averaging $5 per gift with the retail price higher. A temporary Holiday Shop is set up in October and facility directors are invited to select items at no charge for their low-income residents. Volunteers set up, help facility directors shop and run the Holiday Shop for six weeks. Our strategy is to continue to expand our community awareness in order to increase our volunteer base and reach out to organizations for in-kind donations. We also plan to continue to expand our list of facilities in Arizona requesting our services serving as many seniors as we possibly can.

We have a very large inventory stored and ready to be distributed as gifts with volunteers excited to work our Holiday Shop. We also have a data base of senior care facilities and organizations requesting our service during the holiday season. We have over 100 volunteers helping us run the Holiday Shop.

In 2017, ElderTLC doubled their goal of 500 and distributed 1034 gifts operating out a founder's home. In 2018, we increased our goal to 1500, and distributed 2379 gifts to 37 facilities. In 2019 we distributed 4027 to 65 senior care facilities and in the middle of the 2020 pandemic, we gave away over 4700 gifts to 73 senior care facilities with a curbside pickup. We surpassed our goal in 2021 by distributing 5804 gifts to 76 facilities and in 2022 we distributed 6465 gifts to 87 facilities and organizations including Native Nations. Facility directors drove from as far as Winslow, Prescott, Tucson, Yuma, Flagstaff, Prescott, Wickenburg, Surprise, as well as Navajo Nation, White Mtn. Apache, and Tohono O'odham Senior Services. ElderTLC also serves the metro-Phoenix area with facilities in Mesa, Chandler, Scottsdale, Peoria, Sun City, Sun City West, Glendale, and Paradise Valley. We have established ourselves as a source of gifts for senior care facilities, not only helping the residents, but also helping the caregivers who often use their own money to purchase gifts for their residents. We have gained community awareness and built our volunteer based. Next is to grow our core group of year-round volunteers to help with the daily tasks of running ElderTLC, and reach out to faith-based groups and corporations for donations and in-kind donations. A gift from ElderTLC often brings joy long after the holidays.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

President

Linda Stanciu

Linda is President and a founder of ElderTLC. She has an extensive background in adult education and worked in the financial services industry for 13 years. Linda became interested in care for the elderly when her Aunt had a stroke and had no alternative but to reside in a nursing home. After a year of researching and talking to long term care experts, playing a role in creating a nonprofit organization for the elderly is exactly the opportunity Linda was looking for. She can’t think of a better time to focus on those who have given so much to their communities. A native Phoenician, Linda graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Public Administration/Health Services.
