Be A Santa To A Senior 2022

Every year we are humbled and encouraged by the support for this community program and this year is no different.  For the past decade, our goal has been to provide a gift and a visit for residents of long term care over the holidays.

Without our supporters Be A Santa To A Senior would not be the success that it continues to be. Thank you to all involved that make this program a cherished holiday tradition!

You can play a vital role in Be a Santa to a Senior this year!

Seniors deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, especially over the holidays. For seniors with declining health and a diminishing social circle, we have witnessed how refreshing a cup of human kindness can be. Such a simple gesture - providing a small gift for 200 dear people residing in three long-term care homes in Saskatoon - can make a big difference in their lives and ours.

We have partnered with Canada Purple Shield to help with gift collection and distribution and local Saskatoon elementary schools to create cards and crafts to be included with seniors’ gifts. We invite your donations to the gift fund. Our goal is $10,000.  All proceeds go directly to the purchase of gifts.

We will gratefully receive funds until December 2nd. Click Here To Donate:  https://gofund.me/8572b1ca

We hope that next year, we'll be able to resume the entire program, including visits with long term care residents.
