Be a Santa to a Senior in PA, Mid County

Published 12:22 am Wednesday, December 7, 2022

As the community prepares to celebrate the season of giving, Home Instead encourages Port Arthur and Mid County residents to share the holiday spirit with older adults who may not have family and feel alone.

Through Be a Santa to a Senior, community members can give a special holiday gift to an older adult who may otherwise go without.

“A simple gift can bring such joy to older adults who may not have loved ones to celebrate with,” said Charlie Holder, owner of the Beaumont Home Instead office. “Through Be a Santa to a Senior, we can help them feel the holiday spirit.”
