The Foundation for the Betterment of Seniors is partnering with Meals on Wheels providers, local retailers and other agencies to make this Christmas special for 3,000 local seniors through the 2016 “Be a Santa to a Senior” Campaign.

Home Instead Senior Care kicked off the “Be a Santa to a Senior” program in 2003. Since then, with the help of 60,000 volunteers, more than 1.2 million gifts have been distributed through the program to 700,000 seniors across the United States.
