Be a Santa to a Senior


Home Instead Senior Care partners with local non-profit and community organizations to identify seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. The company then works with local businesses and retail stores to help facilitate the purchase and distribution of gifts by placing trees and ornaments within their various locations. Each senior’s gift requests are written on a Be a Santa to a Senior tree ornament.

Here’s how to help an under-served senior:

1. Find the nearest Be a Santa to a Senior tree location by using the form at the top of the Be a Santa to a Senior website.
2. Remove an ornament
3. Purchase the gift
4. Bring ornament and gift back to participating store and give to store employee.

It’s that easy.

Volunteers collect, wrap, and deliver the gifts to the seniors.

Dates vary by location, however, the program typically begins the first week of November with gift collection taking place through mid-December. Volunteers deliver gifts prior to Christmas.
