Home Instead Senior Care® is once again offering the local community a chance to spread joy to local seniors. Through the Be a Santa to a Senior® program, community members can give a senior a special holiday gift.

Since the program’s inception in 2003, the Be a Santa to a Senior program has mobilized more than 60,000 volunteers, provided approximately 1.2 million gifts and brightened the season for more than 700,000 deserving seniors nationwide.

“The Be a Santa to a Senior program is all about including seniors in the joy of the holiday season,” said Kristi Campbell, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care offices in Tampa and Brandon, two of 15 offices serving the Gulf Coast. “A simple gift shows them they are a loved and vital member of our community.”

Be a Santa to a Senior is a true community program with generous support from local businesses, nonprofit organizations, retailers, numerous volunteers and members of the community. The Home Instead Senior Care offices serving Tampa and Brandon have partnered with area businesses and organizations to help with gift collection and distribution.

It’s easy to help. Visit one of the participating locations and look for the Be a Santa to a Senior tree on display through Monday, December 16. Each tree will be decorated with ornaments featuring seniors’ first names and gift suggestions. Holiday shoppers can choose an ornament, buy the requested gift and return it to the store with the ornament attached.

There’s no need to worry about wrapping—community volunteers and program partners will wrap and deliver the gifts to local seniors in time for the holidays.
