The holidays are a joyous time of year, but for many people, particularly senior citizens who don't have any family, it can be a very lonely time of year.

That's where you and the 'Be a Santa to a Senior' program come in.

Home Instead Senior Care sponsors the program in Lexington and Fayette County. 

Names of seniors, who otherwise wouldn't receive any gift at Christmas, are placed on Christmas trees in several locations around Lexington. 

Much like the Angel Tree program, you can pick a name with a wish list and buy a gift or gifts for that senior and Home Instead Senior Care will deliver the packages.

The deadline for one of the programs is this Friday, December 6th.  Another program runs through December 16th, so if you're interested in adopting a senior, you need to act quickly.

You can even get a name via email if you can't make it to one of the adoption tree locations.

You can email Gabriel Huffman at gabriel.huffman@homeinstead.com.  

You can also call 859-273-0085.
