Home Instead Senior Care hosted the kickoff to their 3rd Be A Santa To A Senior Campaign in Mississauga, on November 4th. The program, in partnership with The Alzheimer’s Society, Shoppers Home Health Care and The Mississauga Seniors Center, will be collecting and distributing gifts to isolated and needy seniors in our community.
Stella Amber MP for Mississauga South joined everyone to help decorate the tree and kickoff the campaign. Participating nonprofit organizations in the local communities identify isolated and deserving seniors and provide those names to the local Home Instead Senior Care office in Mississauga. Christmas trees go up in stores, and other locations, that feature Be A Santa To A Senior paper ornaments with the first names only of the seniors, and their gift requests. Holiday shoppers pick up an ornament and buy the item(s) on the list and return them unwrapped to the store. For more information, visit www.beasantatoasenior.ca
