RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Home Instead Senior Care has partnered with 24 local organizations to hold the "Be a Santa to a Senior" program.
The Home Instead Senior Care office will collect and distribute gifts to seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone. The program will kick off Nov. 4 and run through Dec. 13. Christmas trees, which will go up in Reno-area Walmart Vision Centers, will feature ornaments with the first names of the seniors and their respective gift requests.
Holiday shoppers are asked to pick up an ornament off special Be a Santa to a Senior Christmas trees, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. The Home Instead Senior Care office will then enlist the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, non-profit workers and others to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts.
