Santa for a Senior - 2011
What a great community effort again this year - bringing gifts and kindness to Seniors & home bound individuals in Kelowna and West Kelowna.
Initiated a number of years ago by Home Instead – Seniors Care, this program continues to bring smiles and good cheer to Seniors and homebound individuals in our Community. Each year two months before Christmas, Home Instead has placed a tree in London Drugs Kelowna with the first names (provided by Meals on Wheels & others) & suggested gifts on paper ornaments.
These are available for members of the public to take to buy gifts for the names on the paper ornament. The gifts are gathered by Home Instead & placed in gift bags which are then distributed by Meals on Wheels Volunteers.
It is a real joy to see the looks of surprise and appreciation on the faces of the recipients.
What a beautiful community program!
