Be a Santa to a Senior - Home Instead Senior Care

Created: 11/25/2013 7:50 AM

The holidays are on their way, and you can get involved to help seniors who maybe don't have someone to brighten their season.

Home Instead Senior Care operates a service called Be a Santa to a Senior. Volunteers can collect, wrap and deliver gifts to lonely and needy seniors in the Twin Ports. And you can help out!

To be a part of this volunteer organization and help seniors in need, just head to Home Instead Senior Care's website, enter your zipcode to find a giving tree nearby, purchase the gift, and bring the gift along with the ornament you picked from the tree back to the same store. You can also volunteer to collect, wrap, and deliver gifts to seniors.

The program runs until December 20th. You can also call their Duluth office at (866) 427-8810 for more information.
