Santa for a cause

Seniors will have a holiday boost this year, thanks to a senior-care organization that will be helping out the big man in red.

On Nov. ,15 the Home Instead Senior Care network launched its annual Be a Santa to a Senior campaign – which runs until Dec. 10 – providing gifts to seniors who struggle to keep pace with the rising cost of living.

Partnering up with them is Shoppers Home Health Care, which will have Christmas trees decorated with paper ornaments that have the first name of a senior and their gift requests on the back.

After picking an ornament, holiday shoppers can buy the items and return them to the store, unwrapped, with the ornament.

On Dec. 13, there will be a gift-wrapping party at the activity room at Stratford Gardens, 15350 19A Ave., with community volunteers getting the items ready to be slipped under the tree.

Tree locations include Shoppers Home Health Care in White Rock, 15182 North Bluff Rd and the Semiahmoo Vancity, 104-1790 152 St. For a complete list, go to www.besantatoasenior.ca
