Be a Santa to a Senior

facilitate the purchase and distribution of gifts by placing trees
and ornaments at their locations. Each senior’s gift requests are
written on a Santa hat ornament. The program was adopted
in years past by our Health Services Division, and this year,
we invited all Plymouth Harbor employees and residents to
participate. To participate, residents and sta simply chose an
ornament from the tree that was located on the Ground Floor of
the Tower, near the Wellness Wall. Donated gifts were collected
by Jennifer Bruneman and Elizabeth Goldsmith (pictured above)
in the Wellness Center, and Home Instead Senior Care delivered
the gifts to Sarasota County seniors on December 20th and 21st.

In December 2017, sta and residents together donated more
than 75 gifts to the program. We look forward to seeing the
impact we are able to make in December 2018.
