The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Kent, Sussex and southern New Castle counties is encouraging the community to come together to bring the holidays to area seniors through its Be a Santa to a Senior program.
The program is made possible because of the support of local businesses, nonprofit organizations, retailers, volunteers and members of the community.
Holiday shoppers are encouraged to support Be a Santa to a Senior by visiting a participating location where Be a Santa to a Senior trees will be on display from Nov. 2 to Dec. 15. Those 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 with the ornament attached. Wrapping is not required — community volunteers and program partners will wrap and deliver the gifts to local seniors in time for the holidays.
