The Lake County Clerk’s Office was happy to once again bring some joy and holiday cheer this Christmas season by participating in Bay and Lake Pharmacy’s “Santa Loves Seniors” gift donation program in support of LovExtension – a nonprofit, volunteer organization that supports the under-served elderly and disabled communities in Lake County and The Villages.

LovExtension worked with those they support to identify a small, but impactful needed item on their Christmas “wish list.” Staff from the Clerk’s Office teamed up to gather gifts on the list, along with some additional comfort items.

In total, the employees assembled 50 gift bags for individuals containing personalized cards, a box of treats, and items such as clothing, bedding, and cookware. In addition, the office held a bake sale, which resulted in a monetary donation of $1,000 for LovExtension.

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

“It is heartwarming to see the generosity of our Clerk family, and the amount of thought and care they took to ensure that someone’s Christmas will be a bit brighter,” said Gary Cooney, Clerk & Comptroller. “Supporting Linda, who also is a former Deputy Clerk, and what she is doing for our community is something we are very proud of, and we hope others will do the same.”

LovExtension, Inc. is a 501(c)(3), 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.
