The time has finally come! Months and months of planning, organizing, collecting, and reaching out has come together! IT IS SANTA TIME! We have already visited 7 facilities. Santa has greeted and wished a Merry Christmas to countless appreciative seniors. The look on their face is as joyful as a child. It is an amazing event to be involved in!
Some of the visits were actually holiday parties. Our office got to see the seniors open these gifts that the community has donated! You cannot imagine the generosity. These gifts were spectacular! Some of the ornaments had VERY specific gift wishes. The expression on their faces when they opened the gift and GOT THEIR WISH…..PRICELESS! If everyday we could have such an outpouring of community giving, what a world it would be!
It has truly been our pleasure to make the holiday season a little brighter for some seniors who are isolated, financially struggling, or without family. Home Instead Senior Care of Minneapolis has had the blessing of hearing the laughter and seeing the smiles.
