12th Annual "Be a Santa to a Senior" Wrapping Party


​​​
Be a Santa to a Senior” is a program that allows us to brighten the holidays for needy or isolated seniors in our community by providing holiday cheer and gift giving. Without this program, many of these seniors would not receive a gift. Last year we delivered nearly 5​,000 gifts to needy seniors in Williamsburg and on the Peninsula! It is our way to show gratitude to those older adults who have contributed so much to our community. We hope to reach out to many with this gesture of holiday cheer and goodwill.​

​​

Trees are located at the following Wal-Mart Stores:

Williamsburg
Yorktown
Newport News

Shoppers pick an ornament from a tree at one of the above locations, then buy the presents at Wal-Mart and turn them in to the Service Department at Wal-Mart. Volunteers pick up the presents, and then all of the presents are wrapped at one of the community wrapping parties (information below), and then delivered to the seniors the week of December 14-18.

If you would like to participate in the delivery of these gifts to area nursing homes or senior centers, please call the office at 800.371.1194.
