Be A Santa to A Senior

Friday, October 7, 2011

Starting one month from today we will begin collecting items for Be A Santa to A Senior. Be A Santa to A Senior is a great opportunity for the community to come together to provide a little Christmas token for seniors who otherwise would not receive anything. We work with care facilities and other non-profits to identify these seniors. In return agencies deliver the gifts the week of Christmas.
Throughout North America, the program has attracted upwards of 60,000 volunteers over the past six years distributing 1.2 million gifts to more than 700,000 deserving seniors.  
To participate, please purchase a holiday gift bag (with handles) and fill it with any of the items listed below.  Label the bag male or female and bring it to the Home Instead Senior Care office located at 2059 Columbiana Road, Suite 105 Vestavia Hills, AL 35216 by December 8, 2011.

Thank you for sharing the information and that is a great idea as taking care of seniors will not only help them to develop physically but, it will also help them to develop mentally.

Now a days, there are many agencies who are providing the service of home care and I recently, came across a site named as No place like home care llc who is providing senior home healthcare services at Hillsborough.
