‘Tis the season! The city of Chandler’s Golden Neighbors program is hosting a free holiday gathering for senior residents on Thursday, Dec. 14, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the Chandler Community Center, 125 E. Commonwealth Ave.

Join the city’s Neighborhood Programs Office and the Chandler Senior Center to celebrate the holidays with breakfast, entertainment, and holiday gifts. Chandler residents planning to attend are asked to RSVP online or call 480-782-4362.

During the celebration, attendees will receive a holiday gift made possible by generous donations. If the public would like to contribute to the Golden Neighbor gift list, they may purchase a gift directly from the event’s Amazon Wish List, which is available online. The public also may purchase a gift on their own and drop it off at the city’s Neighborhood Resources Department, 235 S. Arizona Ave., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Gifts will be accepted through Tuesday, Dec. 12.

The Golden Neighbors program was created in early 2022 as a resource to connect Chandler seniors with services offered by the city and local nonprofits. For more information about the program, or to donate, visit
