On behalf of the Home Instead Senior Care office located in North Wilkesboro, we would like to thank the community for its overwhelming support of the Be a Santa to a Senior program this holiday season.
Be a Santa to a Senior is a nationwide program that provides gifts and companionship to seniors who may otherwise not have a gift under the tree this Christmas or someone with whom to share the holiday.
Since the program began in 2003, it has helped provide nearly 2 million gifts to more than 700,000 seniors, with the help of over 60,000 volunteers.
In Wilkes County, members of the community generously donated hundreds of gifts for more than 300 area seniors through this year’s program – all of which were placed in beautiful gift bags and delivered by our staff and volunteers, just in time for holidays.
Many of the gifts were for everyday needs such as socks, shirts, blankets, pajamas and toiletries.
We would like to especially thank our community partners who helped make this program possible, including churches, local businesses, clubs, local schools, and other program partners.
Over the past several weeks, these organizations have brightened the holidays by bringing both gifts and companionship to seniors in need across the area.
Our heartfelt thanks to all those who helped make this holiday season so special for our local seniors in need through Be a Santa to a Senior.
