Cue the Sleigh Bells! Santa Needs You.

Our 8th annual Santa for Seniors gift drive prepares for its greatest challenge to date. Hundreds of isolated and homebound seniors may not receive a holiday gift this year without the generosity of the Indian River County community. Each holiday season, we collect and deliver gifts to seniors in need. This year, the number of older adults in crisis has increased dramatically. At least 850 gifts are needed to provide just one gift per senior, compared to 650 last season.

Santa for Seniors relies on the generosity of individuals, volunteers, businesses, community groups, and local retailers. Since the program’s inception, more than 4,000 gifts have been delivered to seniors throughout the county.

Gift collections begin in early November and end Friday, December 10. Organizations and companies are encouraged to participate and share the joy by engaging customers, colleagues, and friends in the gift drive. For more details, please contact Senior Resource Association at 772-569-0760 (ext 119) or events@sramail.org. Please deliver new gifts unwrapped. Include a gift bag to assist our elves, who will personally deliver all presents by Christmas Eve.
