Genuine & Passionate Care for our Community


Be a Santa to a senior

A bunch of non-profit groups and businesses have teamed up help needy and overlooked seniors during the holidays.

The program runs until Dec. 16 and is called Be a Santa to a Senior.

Some non-profit have identified financially needy and lonely seniors in Kelowna, and their first names appear on ornaments along with a gift request on the Christmas tree at London Drugs.

Shoppers can pick up an ornament, buy the item and leave it at the store with the ornament attached.

Home Instead Senior Care will round up volunteers to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts to seniors.

The gift-wrapping party is Dec. 19. Anyone interested in volunteering to help out can call Done Henke at Home Instead Senior Care at 860-4113.

"In addition to supplying gifts, Be a Santa to a Senior is also designed to help stimulate human contact and social interaction for seniors who are unlikely to have guests during the holidays," says Henke.

"Since children are often the focus of holiday festivities, we'd like to help brighten the holidays for some area seniors as well."
