Connections Area Agency on Aging is in need of Secret Santas for our Secret Santa for Seniors program. When the program was started last year, our goal was to reach socially isolated seniors that may not receive any holiday gifts.
Little did we know how great the need would be in 2020. This year is especially difficult for our older friends and neighbors as the pandemic continues, and older adults try to avoid the coronavirus. Social distancing and safety measures may limit contact with friends and family during the holidays, leaving many lonely and socially isolated. We need Secret Santas to help us bring some holiday joy and make the 2020 Secret Santa for Seniors Program a success.
To keep our seniors and staff safe during the current pandemic, we are requesting gift cards (specified by each senior) to be purchased this year and dropped off or mailed to one of our office locations by December 4. Additional gift cards are requested due to the number of requests that have been made to the program.
To be matched with a local senior, please call or email Tasha Jones at: 800-432-9209 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
