Dec 10 Care Mission
Be a Santa to a Senior®
Buy a present for a senior who may not otherwise receive gifts this season.
The Facts: The Home Instead Senior Care® network is partnering with local non-profit and community organizations to identify seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. The company then 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.
Since the program began in 2003, there have been over 1,200,000 gifts provided to deserving seniors; 60,000 volunteers who helped distribute gifts; and 700,000 seniors whose holiday was brighter thanks to the program.

If a Be a Santa to a Senior tree isn’t near you, consider contacting another organization in your community dedicated to helping seniors during the holidays.
Local sites are also looking for volunteers to collect, wrap, and deliver gifts. Visit the Be a Santa to a Senior website to see if there’s a volunteer opportunity near you.
