Be A Santa Program Aims To Help Local Seniors

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 News - The area Home Instead Senior Care® office has partnered with retailers and community organizations to make sure isolated seniors receive gifts and companionship through the Be a Santa to a Senior® program.

With the support of MAC Area Agency on Aging, Commission on Aging, Department of Social Services, the Health Department, area retailers, volunteers and members of the community, the local Home Instead Senior Care office will collect and distribute gifts to seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone.

 The Be a Santa to a Senior program will run through Dec. 6. Christmas trees, which will go up in Apple Drugs at 314 Franklin Ave., Berlin, 404A N. Fruitland Blvd., Salisbury, 1500A Pemberton Dr., Salisbury, at Coastal Drug Center, 10231 Old Ocean City Blvd. Berlin, and the Chamber of Commerce, 14 South Main St., Berlin, will feature ornaments with the first names of the seniors and their respective gift requests.

Holiday shoppers are asked to pick up an ornament off special Be a Santa to a Senior Christmas trees, buy items on the list and return them wrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached.  The Home Instead Senior Care office will then enlist the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, non-profit workers and others to collect and distribute the gifts.
