Lake County Clerk’s Office spreads cheer through ‘Santa Loves Seniors’ gift program

The Lake County Clerk’s Office was happy to once again spread some joy and holiday cheer this Christmas season by participating in Bay and Lake Pharmacy’s “Santa Loves Seniors.” 

The gift donation program works with LovExtension, a nonprofit volunteer organization that supports the under-served elderly and disabled communities in Lake County and The Villages. 

LovExtension worked with individuals they serve to identify needed items on their Christmas “wish lists.” Staff from the clerk’s office gathered gifts on the list and assembled gift bags containing items such as clothing, bedding and cookware. Wanting to provide additional support, the office also held a bake sale, which resulted in a monetary donation of $1,100 for LovExtension.

Linda Krupski, founder of LovExtension, along with representatives from the organization, joined the Clerk’s Office as they presented the items. 

“Supporting Linda, who is also a former deputy clerk, and her honorable mission for our community is something we greatly enjoy,” said Gary Cooney, clerk and comptroller. “It is always heartwarming to see the generous amount of thought and care taken by our clerk family to ensure that someone’s Christmas will be a bit brighter.”  

LovExtension Inc. is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization whose volunteers serve to improve life for local residents by providing social and well-being visits for those who do not have much support, in addition to distributing donated items and supplies to those in need.
