This month we’d like to shine the light on someone few of you may have seen, but may have benefited from her volunteering. Lesia (pronounced Lisa) Alexander has been helping us out since 2020. During that time she has helped serve meals for Thanksgiving, Operation Senior Claus, and most recently, the Grab-n-Go dinners Monday thru Friday she can be helping out her sister, Mae Lucero, getting the dinners from the local restaurants, then helping to distribute them to seniors at the center. However, Leisa doesn’t just come here help to serve food. All that work can wear a person out, so when she’s not volunteering, she enjoys coming to the center’s Aerobics Program to boost her cardio. Originally from Meridian, MS, she and her two siblings came out Calif., to live with, and be raised by their big sister Mae, when their mom passed away. After she grew up she went to work for the Dept. of Corrections where she worked for 27 years before retiring. During that time she raised a son, who in turn, gave her a grandchild. Thanks Leisa for helping to ensure that our senior don’t go hungry.

Featured Activity

Once again the Highland Senior Center and the community of Highland will be tackling Operation Senior Claus. This is an event that provides a Christmas meal to homebound Seniors on Christmas morning. Many seniors have no friends or family, so we want to make sure they are not forgotten.



With the support of the community, we will provide homebound seniors with a nice dinner and a basket of goodies donated by the entire community.



Wont you please help by contributing your time, canned food or a Stater Bros. Gift Card.



For more information on how to get involved, pleases call the center.
