  3. Thank you… and Happy New Year

As we wrap up this year’s Be a Santa to a Senior program, we would like to thank our retail and nonprofit partners, volunteers and members of the community for making the program a huge success.

We set out to fill gift requests for more than 1,000 seniors across the valley – and thanks to everyone’s generous support, we were able to deliver more than 2,500 gifts to those 1,000 deserving seniors.

Our volunteers delivered gifts to seniors in assisted living and skilled nursing facilities as well seniors who are still living in their own homes. In addition to their gifts, each senior received a hand-decorated card from a student from the Mesa Public School district or one of the participating Girl Scout troops.

Special thanks go to the local companies, churches, community organizations and retailers – including Walgreens and Walmart – that helped us collect the gifts. We also appreciate the support of our volunteers – including the Girl Scouts and Gilbert High School Red Cross Club – for helping us decorate gift bags and wrap each of the special deliveries.

For all of those who contributed to our program – please know that you truly did make a difference in the life of a local senior this holiday season.

Thank you… and Happy New Year!
