Something for Seniors is a collection drive hosted by United Country-Oakwood Realty, LLC and held every November to collect much needed personal care and entertainment items for residents of local senior living facilities in our area.

To prevent the spread of illness to some of our most vulnerable recipients, we ask that donors provide new, unused personal care and entertainment items. Items are collected throughout the month of November at local collection sites and from online purchases. Donations are distributed in December to senior care facilities in Viroqua and Soldiers Grove.
