Be a Santa to a Senior, the popular community outreach program that in 2011 delivered more than 835 gifts to local needy seniors, has launched its 9th season, once again spearheaded by Home Instead Senior Care of Torrance.
Taking place throughout Torrance, the South Bay and Marina del Rey from November 19th through December 19th, Be a Santa to a Senior is organized to ensure that low-income seniors get the items they need and want, which in many cases are grocery and pharmacy cards to help with the cost of food and medicine.
Almost 40 South Bay businesses and social service agencies have partnered with Home Instead Senior Care to produce this popular program and much needed program.
Prior to the holiday season, participating local non-profit organizations identified needy and isolated seniors in the community and provided those names to Home Instead Senior Care. Christmas trees, which went up week of November 19th in 20 South Bay locations, including the Del Amo Mall, feature ornaments with seniors’ first names and their respective gift requests.
Be a Santa to a Senior works as follows:
