It’s the holiday season, and time to channel your ‘Inner Elf.’ You can share the spirit by participating in the “Be a Santa to a Senior” service program.
Home Instead Senior Care partners 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 tree ornament.
This program helps brighten the lives of lonely or isolated seniors in Houston. In the last five years, 60,000 volunteers have delivered 1.2 million gifts to more then 700,000 seniors throughout the United States.
