Be a Santa to a Senior program is run by Home Instead Senior Care and program partners that has delivered over 19,000 gifts to seniors in the community
Seniors who are impoverished and/or isolated are referred to the program by health care professionals and agencies serving older adults.They are asked what it is they need or would like and these wishes are filled through kind donations from the community.
Donations are received from retirement residences, churches, businesses, community organizations, health care agencies, and members of the community.
HOW IT WORKS:
1) Visit a tree location to pick up ornaments
2) Remove an ornament from the tree that will include the name of the senior and the gift request
3) Purchase the listed gift
4) Return the gift wrapped with the ornament firmly attached to the location by the designated date.
Once all the gifts are collected they are then delivered by a volunteer accompanied with a warm heart and friendly visit.
