Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Home Instead Senior Care is ready to spread holiday joy this season with their Be a Santa to a Senior® program! For the past six years, Home Instead has partnered with local nonprofit and community organizations to identify seniors who may not receive gifts this holiday season. The company then reaches out to local businesses and retail stores to help arrange the purchase and distribution of gifts by placing trees in their locations that contain gift tag “ornaments” with gift requests for each senior. The trees go up in Wesley Chapel participating businesses on Wednesday, November 5th until Monday, December 15th. In Clearwater, trees will be up from Monday, November 3rd until Friday, December 19th. This year, 52 Walgreen’s locations in Pinellas County and 12 Bealls Outlets locations will host trees in their stores as well. The customers that shop at these locations choose a gift tag from the tree and buy gifts for their designated senior. These gifts can be anything like toiletries, games, or pajamas. Once the gifts are purchased, they can be brought back, unwrapped, to the same store or to a Home Instead location. Be a Santa to a Senior volunteers regularly collect gifts and replace gift tags as needed and also deliver the gifts to each senior. This program has attracted 60,000 volunteers and has delivered 1.2 million gifts over the past six years. Be a Santa to a Senior helps brighten the lives of many seniors around the holiday season, a time when no one should be alone. All parties who participate experience a rewarding experience from this wonderful program.
Home Instead Senior Care would like to thank this year’s Be a Santa to a Senior corporate sponsors Deliver Media, JSA Medical Group, Ricoh USA, Walgreen’s, Bealls Outlets and Brighthouse Networks.
If you are an organization that would like to participate, it’s simple! Home Instead Senior Care provides the gift tag ornaments for you to display on a tree, wreath, or anywhere in your store that will attract customer attention. If you are unable to display the gift tags anywhere in your store, monetary donations are accepted by Home Instead as well. Donations will be put towards gifts that your local Home Instead office will purchase for the program. These donations are not tax deductible.
