Spreading Christmas spirit

Posted on Monday, December 23, 2019 at 3:18 pm

Santa came a bit early for 142 seniors in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula who otherwise may not have received any gifts this holiday season.

Bay Aging and Home Instead Senior Care partnered for their second annual “Be a Santa to a Senior” program and delivered presents to low- and no-income seniors last week.

The recipients were given a wish list in advance that allowed them to select items such as store gift cards, clothing, toiletries and products for the home. They also had the opportunity to request items that weren’t listed.

All of the gift requests were written on ornaments and placed on trees in local businesses. Members of the community selected ornaments and fulfilled every wish the seniors had this year, confirmed Michael Norvell, vice president of development and marketing for Bay Aging.
