Helped Brighten the Holidays

On behalf of the staff at Home Instead Senior Care, I would like to thank everyone who helped with this year's very successful Be a Santa to a Senior program.

With support from generous shoppers, East Haven Senior Services; Guilford Housing Authority; Guilford Community Center; Madison Senior Services; North Branford Senior Services; Girl Scout troops 62179, 62303, 62067, and 62226; Stop & Shop in Branford, East Haven, and Madison; Robert's Food Center in North Madison; and Big Y and Walmart in Guilford, we were able to collect more than 650 gifts for local seniors who otherwise might have been overlooked this holiday season.

We also would like to thank the many volunteers who shared their time to collect, wrap, and deliver the gifts to area seniors.

Thanks go to all those who helped us brighten the holidays for our local seniors and truly making a difference in our community.
