Santa for Seniors

Help make the holidays merrier for our community’s seniors.

The holidays are just around the corner and SANTA FOR SENIORS is getting sleigh-ready. More than 450 older and disabled adults depend on Senior Resource Association for a hot meal, in-home services and a safe, welcoming place to go each day. The holidays can be especially stressful for our clients.

We are collecting holiday gifts again this season for all of our clients, including those that are homebound. Following is a convenient Wish List for gift ideas and a list of all drop-off locations in Indian River County. Thank you for helping us make the season merrier for those who need it most.
