Holiday help wanted for seniors


NT Staff




Home Instead Senior Care is teaming up with nonprofit agencies and area retailers to sponsor Be a Santa to a Senior, a program that collects, wraps and delivers gifts to lonely and needy seniors in La Salle, Bureau, Putnam and Grundy counties.

The program is run by the local Home Instead Senior Care office with local partners, retailers, volunteers and citizens. It helps seniors receive gifts and companionship during the holidays.

Retailers will display Christmas trees through Dec. 13 that feature ornaments with seniors’ first names and their gift requests. Holiday shoppers can pick an ornament from these trees, buy the items listed and return them unwrapped to the store, with the ornament attached.

Trees will be at Handy Foods in Ottawa, Hy-Vee in Peru, and Sullivan’s Foods in Princeton and Mendota.

The local Home Instead Senior Care office will enlist volunteers to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts to local seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone. There will be a community gift wrapping party Dec. 18 and gifts will then be delivered to seniors.

For information visit BeaSantatoaSenior.com or call (815) 223-7970.
