Letter to the Editor:
‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ delivers for 100 Milford, Eastgate seniors

On behalf of the Home Instead Senior Care office located in Milford, we would like to thank the community for its overwhelming support of the Be a Santa to a Senior program this holiday season. The program 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.

At the Kroger on Main Street in Milford, members of the community generously donated nearly 100 gifts for area seniors through this year’s program – all of which were wrapped and delivered by Home Instead Senior Care employees, in time for holidays. Many of the gifts were for everyday needs such as socks, pajamas, blankets and toiletries.

Be a Santa to a Senior is a nationwide program that started in 2003. Since then, it has helped provide nearly two million gifts to more than 700,000 seniors across the country. This could only have been accomplished with the help of more than 60,000 volunteers.

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.

To volunteer for next year’s program or for more information, visit BeaSantatoaSenior.com or call 513-576-1250.
