Angel Christmas Tree Program:  The Ludington Area Senior Center takes pride in their Senior Christmas Program. Each year, letters are sent to Adult Foster Care homes in Mason County, requesting names and desires for seniors who don’t have anyone to spend the holidays with them or those in need. The names tags with requested items are then placed on a Christmas tree at the center. The names are selected by companies or individuals; who replaced them with angels. The items are returned to the Ludington Area Senior Center and gift wrapped by dedicated volunteers. The homes are contacted for pick up when the gifts are ready. Everyone is invited to take part in this charitable cause for seniors living in our community.
