Community Advocacy Organization

Here in the Tri-County area, there will be No Senior Without Christmas!

The Tri-County Area Law Enforcement and Fire Agencies will celebrate “No Senior without Christmas” today, (Thursday), December 8th, beginning at 9 am.


Our community elders can be overlooked during the holidays. Many live alone and are striving to stay in their own homes. Our community's public safety officers know how difficult it is to meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable adults.

Volunteers will gather at a Lansing Fire Station at 9 o'clock to assemble 400 boxes to be distributed as Christmas gifts to elders in need. The boxes will be filled with a variety of necessities and food items donated by area businesses and individual sponsors. Uniformed officers and firefighters will deliver the boxes in marked patrol cars and fire engines around 10:30 this morning. Deliveries encompass the Tri-County regions of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties.

“No Senior without Christmas” is organized by Tri-County TRIAD, which carries on the tradition in honor of the late Marilyn Henderson, Nancy Weber, Emily Horne, and Pastor Armando Gutierrez.

Tri-County TRIAD is a collaboration of law enforcement, fire personnel, senior citizens, and community members in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties. TRIAD strives to protect and empower senior citizens, so they feel safe and connected to our community.


Tri-County TRIAD is a non-profit organization and donations are welcomed year-round to -- Tri-County TRIAD, P.O. Box 26182, Lansing, MI 48909, or submitted online at www.noseniorwithoutchristmas.org.


You are also welcome to contact Jason Stevens, Emergency Management Captain, Lansing Fire Department, (517) 614-1051, or Jason.Stevens@lansingmi.gov for further information.
