Home Instead Senior Care is gearing up for its annual Be a Santa to a Senior program to assist seniors in the Toledo community. The donation event raises awareness for the aging population that cannot support themselves during the tough winter months. In 2014, Home Instead collected 394 gifts and donations for seniors in our community.
"Be a Santa to a Senior helps brighten the holidays for local seniors who might otherwise be overlooked this season," said Lauren LaFerriere, Client Care Coordinator for Home Instead Senior Care.
This community service program positively impacts the Toledo-area by providing holiday cheer and gift giving to seniors who are least likely to receive a present during the holiday season, are lonely and financially in need.
"While children are the beneficiaries of many holiday programs, people often don't think about the isolated and lonely seniors who need to be remembered as well during this season," added Nicole Madeker, Client Care Coordinator for Home Instead Senior Care.
Coverage of this event is greatly appreciated. To schedule an interview, please contact Lindsey Dake at 419-472-8181
