The Celebrations Fund commemorates special occasions throughout the year for the individuals of Lakemary. Birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, or other meaningful milestones are honored with lively festivities, special meals and, on occasion, necessities like a winter coat, shoes, or other personal items. This fund makes it all possible.

Lakemary provides Christmas surprises to over 100 individuals in our care each year.

A festive holiday meal, a stocking filled with small extras, and a few beautifully wrapped gifts are just some of the ways we celebrate the season. This tradition ensures all Lakemary residents, especially those without other family or whose families are unable to provide something extra this year, will get to enjoy Christmas as much as everyone else.

You can help make this all happen! We love Christmas and it is important that the whole Lakemary family gets to share in the joy. Please join us as we celebrate the season together.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. A monetary donation which provides Christmas surprises in addition to honors other special occasions throughout the year as well; such as birthdays, graduation, etc.
