Home Instead Senior Care of Melrose, MA again participated in the "Be A Santa To A Senior" program.We worked with 22 senior facilities in the greater Melrose area where we put up a Christmas tree in a local supermarket and a BJ’s wholesale club. Paper ornaments were attached to the tree with the gift and the name of the senior. Members in the community took a tag, bought the gift for the senior, and returned it to the store. We picked them up and distributed them to the facilities and this way seniors who have no families are provided with gifts!
We distributed the gifts to all of the 22 facilities and provided over 700 presents to seniors in 2019!
