The largest community event we participate in is our annual Be a Santa to a Senior program. Since 2005, Be A Santa To A Senior in Roanoke has provided gifts to over 12,000 seniors in the Roanoke Valley. Franchise Owner, Betsy Head leads a team of staff and volunteers to coordinate the program. Home Instead works with local non-profit organizations to identify low-income seniors who are isolated and may not receive gifts over the holiday season. We then work with local businesses to facilitate the purchase and distribution of gifts throughout our community. Be a Santa to a Senior is our way of spreading the Roanoke Valley's holiday cheer to those seniors who need it most. We have hundreds of volunteers that help with the program, if you would like to volunteer, please contact the office at (540)613-6060.
