Brevard County Triad Seeking Community Assistance With Senior Santa Project
BREVARD COUNTY, FL – Brevard County TRIAD is working on the 18th Annual Senior Santa Project. The goal of the Senior Santa project is to provide the elderly in nursing homes and hospice settings with a personal gift around the holidays. Recipients of these gifts are residents who have little or no support in the area and would not otherwise receive a special gift, when family and friends usually gather.
For 2017, TRIAD has adopted nearly 1,700 senior Brevard County residents to receive gifts. To accomplish this, they need assistance from the community. Santa face ornaments with specific items these seniors want or need have been placed on Senior Santa trees located at the Schechter Community Center Satellite Beach; One Senior Place on Spyglass Hill Road, Viera; Parrish Senior Solutions office on Century Medical Drive, Titusville; Titusville Police Department on John Glenn Blvd., Titusville and the Palm Bay Chamber office on U.S. 1, Palm Bay. Check at the Senior Santa tree location for a list of Gift Drop Off locations or visit http://brevardtriad.org/ for details. All gifts purchased must be received by December 5, 2017. TRIAD asks that all gifts be returned unwrapped in a shopping bag with the Santa head of recipient.
Donations are welcome, and TRIAD will do the shopping. Please send donations to Brevard County TRIAD, Inc. P.O. Box 410518, Melbourne, FL 32941. For more information, contact Jennifer Helin at 321-544-3052.
