Be a Santa to a Senior

Be a Santa to a Senior

The Holiday Season is a time full of happiness and cheer. A time to gather with friends and family to share gifts and good food. For some, celebrating doesn't come as easily. Plenty of our local Seniors either don’t have family close, or because of financial reasons, don’t celebrate like the rest of us. Home Instead Senior Care has come together with local nonprofits and community organizations identify Seniors in our area with this same dilemma. Now here is your chance to help bring the holiday cheer back into a local Senior’s life!

Since 2003 Home Instead Senior Care has held the “Be a Santa to a Senior” program. They partner with local nonprofit and community organizations to identify and to send cheer to local seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts during this holiday season. Trees are placed in local businesses, and decorated with special ornaments. Each ornament has the name of a Senior, and their gift request. Participating is simple! First, find a tree near you from the list provided below. Pick the ornament with the seniors information from the tree and take it with you to a nearby store to purchase their special gift. Bring the gift with the ornament back to the same location, and place it in the designated box. The volunteers will take care of the rest.
