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.
