Local non-profits and other community organizations are identifying seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. They also recognize that the holidays can be a difficult time for many seniors. That’s one of the reasons the “Be a Santa to a senior” program was launched.

To be a companionship to seniors who may be isolated during the holidays.

With the support of the Nutrition Service Center, Orange Community Action Association, home health agencies, area retailers, volunteers and members of the community to Be a Santa to a Senior Program of Southeast Texas will collect and distribute gifts to a senior who might otherwise spend the holiday alone.

This is the 16th year of this program and over the past 16 years, we have served over 24,000 local seniors. Your help is greatly appreciated, for without you the program could not be a success. Thanks in advance for your help as well in making the holidays for many seniors a happier experience.
