uReport: Home Instead Senior Care kicks off 2017 'Be a Santa' program

Community Nov 14, 2017 Etobicoke Guardian

The holidays are a great time to celebrate the warmth of the season with loved ones, but for isolated seniors that don’t have friends or family nearby, it can be a particularly lonely time. To help bring holiday cheer to Etobicoke seniors, Home Instead Senior Care launched the 2017 Be a Santa to a Senior program on Monday, Nov. 13.

Etobicoke residents can participate in the program by picking up an ornament from a Home Instead Christmas tree, purchasing the items listed, and returning them unwrapped to the same location. All gifts will then be wrapped and donated to local seniors who might otherwise spend the holidays alone. This year’s Be a Santa to a Senior program runs until Dec. 1.

“We’re excited to get started and see the tree ornaments turn into meaningful gifts and interactions that can make a real impact on seniors’ quality of life this holiday season,” said Brenda Enright of the Etobicoke Home Instead Senior Care office at Monday’s launch.

Providing gifts and companionship at a time when seniors may need it most, the program is made possible through the generous support of Etobicoke businesses, nonprofit organizations, retailers, numerous volunteers and members of the community.

Be a Santa to a Senior trees can be found at Tapestry at Village Gate West, 15 Summerland Terrace, in Etobicoke.
