Gift Giving Program
The Public Administrator’s Office contacts Jefferson County nursing homes and residential
care facilities to obtain the names of their residents who have no family members or friends
active in their lives. In turn, staff members seek assistance from County officeholders and
employees, as well as, judges, attorneys, doctors, local banks, civic organizations
and individual citizens to ensure that these residents receive Christmas gifts. Beneficiaries
of this program include not only the wards of the Public Administrator, but also any needy
resident of participating County facilities.
Since the program's inception over 20 years ago, we are proud to say that the Jefferson
County community has been extremely generous with donations of gifts and money to make
certain that thousands of nursing home residents have a Merry Christmas.
