LUBBOCK, TX - Home Instead Senior Care has partnered with Adult Protective Services and Lubbock Meals on Wheels for its annual Be a Santa to a Senior program to help seniors in the community who might not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. The last day to donate is Dec. 6.
Over 450 seniors have been identified in the Lubbock community as most likely to be left out at Christmas. There are six locations across the Hub City with trees set up and a senior who needs help.
- City Bank on the Marsha Sharp Freeway
- LakeRidge Chapel and Memorial Designers - 6025 82nd St.
- Tom's Tree Place - 5104 34th St.
- True Value - 1126 Slide Rd.
- Walmart - South Loop and Quaker Ave.
- Home Instead Senior Care - 1010 Slide Rd.
Anyone can also make a monetary donation to Home Instead Senior Care to help purchase any other items. Home Instead Senior Care Franchise Owner, Tracy Baugh, said this program brings so much joy to those receiving gifts.
"We feel like those seniors are very lonely and feel like they are forgotten about at Christmas," Baugh said. "They just need to be warm, dry and safe and Christmas is a time to reach out and help someone in need."
The most needed items are blankets, pajamas, cleaning supplies and shelf stable food. The donations will also help fill the Silver Star Room, an emergency services room, at Adult Protective Services.
The last day to donate is Dec. 6 and gifts will be delivered on Dec. 13.
