Staff members at an Erie area senior home care company are giving Santa a helping hand this week.
Caregivers and office staff at Home Instead Senior Care are working with members of the Alzheimer’s Association and volunteers to help wrap presents for about 450 seniors. They say they do this every year because not everyone has family to visit.
Kolby Gannoe of Home Instead Senior Care says, “ We have to remember that some aren’t that lucky… that we do have individuals out there, those seniors especially to share that holiday joy with.”
Among the items donated for the ‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ program this year include books, games, clothing and personal care supplies.
