Be A Santa to a Senior

I’m trying to forget how close Christmas is. But it is coming up fast, and about 30 seniors still haven’t been sponsored through the area’s Be a Santa to a Senior effort. Here are the details:


 Home Instead Senior Care’s Be a Santa to a Seniorcommunity service program is serving 942 needy and lonely seniors this year! 

How you can help:


•   Make a cash, gift card or gift/food donation. Your donation will help purchase gifts to seniors.  We are in need of non-perishable food as many of our seniors have requested food this year.

•   Visit a Tree/Wreath Location and adopt a senior:

1.    Mary Washington Hospital (to the right of the information desk)

2.    Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center (admin. office, 10300 Spotsylvania Ave., #130) 

3.    Stafford Hospital Center (in main lobby)

  1. 2300 Fall Hill Avenue (ground floor lobby)

Please urge your co-workers, friends and family members to consider adopting a senior!
