Our Home Instead Senior Care is proud to sponsor Be A Santa To A Senior, a nonprofit initiative that annually hundreds of needy and/or lonely seniors during the holiday season by providing a visit and a Christmas gift. For years we have b​een providing gifts to seniors throughout the area, and here's how our program works:

Home Instead representatives work with our local Area Agencies on Aging, local retirement communities and social service agencies to identify those who are 60 or older from their service population who fit our need criteria. These people are offered an opportunity to participate in our program by filling out an application that allows them to choose up to 3 gift items from a long list of options. Applications are collected through the months of September and October, and then we process the applications and enroll participants in our program. The information provided on the applications is printed onto labels and attached to gift-request tags which are then distributed out into our community. Some of these tags go to organizations who choose to become program partners by adopting 10 or more tags. Others go on public trees in various locations throughout town and are chosen by shoppers and patrons of the businesses hosting the trees. Each tag represents a real person, with very real requests.
