The holidays are near and Home Instead Senior Care has a program that allows for members of the community to be a “Santa to a Senior”
Be a Santa to a Senior is for anyone in Lauderdale County and the surrounding areas that wants to give back during the holiday season. This program allows for members to pick a senior to sponsor and fulfill their wish list.
“It helps seniors throughout our community, throughout Lauderdale county, surrounding areas, that are lonely during the holidays, may or may not have family, but are definitely lonely. It just helps fill those voids.
"We get the list of names, we get their specific needs and those wishes for their Christmas. So you just come into our office, we are at 4808 Great River Dr. Suite C, you take a bulb off the tree, there are many, many, names to choose from, you sign our little book and then by December 6, bring that back in, in a box unwrapped with the bulb. We get it wrapped and we deliver those back to the agencies for them to deliver back", said Julie Webb, Program Coordinator.
