are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization and Missouri
nonprofit corporation, headquartered in St. Charles, Missouri. The
David & Gloria Fissell Foundation is dedicated to helping nursing
home residents in need of assistance in the St. Charles County,
Missouri area. Currently we are primarily assisting five (5)
St. Charles County nursing homes comprised of approximately 449
residents; this includes mostly senior citizens and some disabled
individuals. Our goal is to improve the lives of these people
by providing things that they need (such as healthy food, warm,
comfy blankets, socks, specialty pillows for medical and rehab needs,
and personal care itemssuch as lip balm and hand lotions/creams),
as well as things that will add enjoyment to their lives (such as
large print books, magazines, crossword puzzles, word searches,
coloring books, art supplies, playing cards, board games, movies,
music, outings, and special events). Often nursing home residents
have very limited income and mobility, and really appreciate even
small things that many of us take for granted.
Spending time with seniors and disabled individuals, as well as providing gifts and special prizes, helps these folks know that they still matterand are truly cared about and NOT forgotten! Residents enjoy reading material, puzzles, word searches, card games, and good old-fashioned board games! Moviesincluding classics and personal favorites, as well as new releasesare a hit! In addition, seniors and disabled persons enjoy a wide variety of music, local entertainers, and special holiday and year-round events.
We provide prizes to residents who win nursing home-sponsored board games, and are privileged to BLESS residents with haircuts, gift certificates, and birthday/holiday treats and presents. It's our goal to add JOY to the lives of seniors and disabled individuals and put smiles on their faceseach and every day!
