Many of our community's seniors do not have the chance to celebrate the holidays surrounded by loved ones, and we know that there are many people in the community who want to reach out - together we all make a difference by providing gifts and companionship.
Be a Santa To a Senior
Since 2009 the annual Be a Santa to a Senior® program, sponsored by Home Instead® has gladly brought together community volunteers and seniors living in long term care homes during the Christmas holiday season.
Each year we provide personal visits and gift deliveries to seniors: businesses and families donate funds for the gifts; elementary school children make cards and crafts; hundreds of volunteers are recruited and coordinated for delivery parties to 15 long term care homes during the holidays.
For 2021, our plans are ‘in the works’ and we can’t wait to resume our visits to residents of Long Term Care homes this year as long as the Health Order restrictions are lifted at that time. We missed the opportunity to reach out in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we know the seniors will be eager for some smiling faces, some lovely visits and of course a few gifts!
We hope you will be able to join us in spreading good cheer this holiday season!
