AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Now that the holiday season is officially here, a local group wants you to add one more person to your Christmas list.

Home Instead Senior Care is once again kicking off its “Be a Santa to a Senior” program.

It connects seniors with volunteers who buy them gifts.

Local businesses have trees with names of 500-seniors who are waiting for gifts. They’ll be on display thru December 9th.

It’s a small act of kindness that will make a huge impact.

“Our seniors sometimes are forgotten and so to be able to give back to them feel still loved and still needed and have a gift for them is great,” said client care director Viki Stoops.

If you participate, you’re asked to buy your senior four small gifts, then return them unwrapped.
