The holiday season is a time of giving and celebration but for some seniors in our community, it can be very lonely. This year, you can help spread joy to local seniors across southwestern Indiana with the Be a Santa to a Senior program.
Home Instead Senior Care’s Be a Santa to a Senior program has been around for more than 15 years. There are more than 20 Be a Santa to a Senior trees around southwestern Indiana.
Each tree is decorated with ornaments featuring a local senior’s name and a gift suggestion. All you have to do is pick one by December 6th, buy a gift and bring it back to the location.
Home Instead Senior Care representative Emily Tison says, “So there are a lot of programs out there that are geared towards kids, and a lot of the seniors get forgotten about. So many seniors don’t have family anymore, or their family doesn’t live here so they don’t get gifts at Christmas time.”
There’s no need to worry about wrapping the gift either community volunteers and program partners will wrap and deliver the gifts to local seniors in time for the holidays.
