For most of us, the holidays provide happy memories. We look forward to spending time with family, doing activities together and exchanging gifts. However, for our elderly population, it can be depressing and lonely. The Be a Santa to a Senior Tucson 2018 program provides gifts and a bit of companionship during the holiday season. But they need your help in order to accomplish this.
Be a Santa to a Senior Tucson 2018
Since 2003, Home Instead Senior Care has managed to deliver over 1.2 million gifts to more than 700,000 senior citizens nationwide. You can help make this Christmas merry and bright for our local elderly population by participating in the Be a Santa to a Senior Tucson program.
All you have to do is visit one of the specially decorated Christmas trees at one of the locations listed below. Pick a tag (or three) off the tree. On that tag, you'll find the name and request of a specific senior citizen living here in the Tucson area. Purchase that gift and then return it (unwrapped) along with its tag to the box located next to the tree you took the bulb from. Home Instead works with local volunteers to wrap and deliver all presents to their intended recipients in time for Christmas.
