Home Instead Senior Care® is offering the area 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 2.1 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 Sheena Sando, owner of the Fargo Home Instead Senior Care office in a release. “A simple gift shows them they are a loved and cherished member of our community.”

Help by visiting one of the participating locations listed below and look for the Be a Santa to a Senior tree on display from Nov. 19-Dec. 9. 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.
