LifeStream needs your help to deliver hope during the holidays

LifeStream is seeking support from the community to help them deliver hope to older adults who are isolated and alone during the holiday season with AngelWish. LifeStream’s AngelWish program coordinates the delivery of gift bags filled with practical necessities to isolated older adults in Blackford, Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Grant, Henry, Jay, Madison, Randolph, Rush, Union, and Wayne counties. This bag is more than just material goods – it is hope for a better tomorrow.

For over 20 years, generous businesses, clubs, organizations, churches, and individuals have come together as a community to ensure the most vulnerable are not forgotten during the holidays. Below is how individuals and organizations can support the AngelWish program:

  • Make a monetary donation: With just a $35 donation, a person will receive a gift bag. Donations can be made online at lifestreaminc.org/angelwish or mailed to 1701 Pilgrim Blvd. Yorktown, IN 47396. Please note AngelWish with your donation. Checks should be made payable to LifeStream Services.
  • Donate canned soup: Each AngelWish recipient will receive a microwavable soup cup. Individuals and business can help LifeStream fill their cups by donating canned soups of all varieties. Donations can be dropped off at the LifeStream offices in Anderson, Richmond, or Yorktown. Pick up can be arranged in advance by calling 765-759-3372.
  • Sign up to be a delivery elf: LifeStream expects to deliver 1,200 AngelWish gift bags between December 7 and December 24. Dependable volunteers are needed to help deliver gift bags to AngelWish recipients to ensure all bags are delivered by December 24.
  • Become a sponsor: Sponsorships start at $100 and go up to $2,500. Benefits can include logo and name listed on print and online materials, name listed in Streamlines newsletter delivered to over 3,500 homes and businesses, as well as the opportunity to provide promotional materials.
