Be a Santa to a Senior
December 1, 2014
Christmas time is a time of giving and once again, Tapestry is proud to be a part of the “Be A Santa To A Senior” program. This program helps spread holiday cheer to lonely or financially challenged seniors in the community.
How Be a Santa to a Senior Works
Home Instead Senior Care partners with local non-profit and community organizations to identify seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season. The company then works with local businesses and retail stores to help facilitate the purchase and distribution of gifts by placing trees and ornaments within their various locations. Each senior’s gift requests are written on a Be a Santa to a Senior tree ornament. Tapestry will have a Christmas tree with “Be a Santa ” ornaments. Launch for the program begins on Monday November 17th. Wrap up party will be on Monday December 15th.
1. Remove an ornament
2. Purchase the gift
3. Bring ornament and gift back to Tapestry and give to Front Desk.
Tapestry has Be a Santa to a Senior tree set up at all three locations – Tapestry at Arbutus Walk (Vancouver), Tapestry at Wesbrook Village (Vancouver) and Tapestry at Village Gate West (Toronto). Follow the links to contact us for more information!
