Hero of the Week – Santa to a Senior

| SC Living | December 19, 2014

santa to a senior logoA national charity program provides Americans an easy way to share their abundance with older folks in their communities. Sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care, business locations in each community offer to be “pick up locations,” where participants choose a list from a local senior and buy them gifts in time for Christmas. Seniors get gifts from their Christmas wish lists and those blessed with extra resources get a chance to share.
Participants purchase the gifts and drop them off at one of the business locations and volunteers and CAREGivers from Home Instead Senior Care pick them up, then help bag and distribute them. In addition to providing gifts, Be a Santa to a Senior offers human contact and social interaction for seniors who are unlikely to have family or guest visits during the holidays.
