As the holiday season approaches, so does the 2022 Heritage Community Dove Project.
It’s a long-standing tradition between Heritage Community and the Park Rapids community. It provides a special touch to Christmas for all of our residents.
Each year, paper doves are cut and gift ideas are put on them, corresponding to what each resident would like or could use. The doves are hung on trees at Citizens National Bank, Northview Bank and TruStar Federal Credit Union, in their lobbies.
Community members take as many doves as they wish, purchase a gift or two off the list, wrap it up and return it to the bank or to Heritage Living Center by Dec. 19.
On Dec. 22, residents will receive their presents, along with Christmas cheer. The smiles on their faces are priceless!
Through the Dove Project, our residents have enjoyed the generosity from friends and supporters of our facility.
Our doves will be on the trees at the banks after Thanksgiving.
Thanks for making Christmas a little more special for our residents. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 218-237-8334.
