‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ program kicks off Nov. 16
Holiday shoppers are invited to support Home Instead Senior Care’s “Be a Santa to a Senior” by visiting a participating location where Be a Santa to a Senior trees will be displayed from Nov. 16 to Dec. 5.
Trees will be decorated with paper ornaments featuring seniors’ first names and their desired gifts. Holiday shoppers can choose an ornament, buy the requested gift and return it to the store or the local Home Instead office with the ornament attached. There’s no need to worry about wrapping — community volunteers and program partners will wrap and deliver the gifts to local seniors in time for the holidays.
Providing gifts and companionship at a time when seniors may need it most, the program is made possible through the generous support of Yavapai and Coconino County businesses, nonprofit organizations, retailers, numerous volunteers and members of the community. The local Home Instead Senior Care office has partnered with Alta Vista Retirement Living, Las Fuentes Resort Village, YMCA-Prescott, Meals on Wheels-Prescott/Prescott Valley, West Yavapai Guidance Center: Senior Peers, NACOG: Area Agency on Aging, Maggie’s Hospice, Angels Home Care, Hospice of the Pines, Chino Valley Quilters Guild and Judy Pogledich to help with gift collection and distribution.
