96.1 The Eagle – “The Perfect Gift” Adopt an ELC Resident

December 17 @ 4:00 pm

‘Tis the season of giving, and 96.1 The Eagle has teamed up with Rescue Mission of Utica to help those in need.

COVID-19 has changed everything, including the annual Perfect Gift Christmas event. This year 96.1 The Eagle is going virtual to keep everyone safe and healthy. A virtual event will make it easier for you as gifts will be shipped directly to the Utica Rescue Mission. Just choose the Enriched Living Center resident you want to purchase gifts for and shop via their Amazon Wish List. In a couple of clicks, you’re done, and you’ve made a positive impact on someone going through a difficult time in their life.

How to adopt a resident:

  • Open the above link.
  • Click on the person you want to adopt.
  • Add the person’s name in the gift/note section and have it shipped to the Utica Rescue Mission at 293 Genessee Street, Utica, N.Y., 13501. You will still need to mark “Buying this gift elsewhere?” and “Mark item as purchased” to show the resident has been adopted.
  • For those shopping locally, please drop off the gifts at the Utica Rescue Mission, 293 Genessee Street, Utica, N.Y., 13501 by 12/17/21. You must click “Buying this gift elsewhere?” and “Mark item as purchased” to show the resident has been adopted.

DEADLINE:   All gifts MUST be unwrapped. When purchasing via Amazon, please select the gift option and note who the gift is for.
