Be A Santa To A Senior
What is Be a Santa to a Senior? Each year, Home Instead Senior Care offices throughout North America spread holiday cheer to lonely or financially challenged seniors through this program. The aim is to spread holiday cheer throughout your local community.
How does it work? Home Instead Senior Care partners with local non-profit community organizations to identify seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. Then, the company works with local businesses and retail stores to help facilitate the purchase and distribution of gifts by placing trees and ornaments within their various locations. Each senior’s gift requests are written on a Be a Santa to a Senior bulb found on the Christmas tree. What an amazing way to give back to the community. And what better time to do something nice than throughout the Holiday season?
Since the program began in 2003, volunteers have helped distribute over 20,000,000 gifts provided to over 750,000 deserving seniors whose holiday was brightened.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year we have partner with Amazon to make the process contactless.
Here is the process
- Go to https://www.beasantatoasenior.com/#getting-started to find a participating location.
- Click on the bulb with senior’s wish gift.
- Purchase the requested gift(s) listed on the bulb.
- Amazon will deliver your gift to a senior.
