“Be a Santa to a Senior”

“Be a Santa to a Senior”

Dec 14, 2016

Two Sr. Office Administrators from FedEx Ground wanted to do something for the elderly in their community. They accomplish this goal, they felt that helping the “Be a Santa to a Senior” program was the perfect fit. This program is headed of the Good Samaritan Society, which is an organization that is dedicated to providing shelter and aid to the elderly.

The two team members helped the program by creating a donation drive for their office and collected gifts for the seniors. Inside the gifts included lap blankets, gloves, hats, slippers, handkerchiefs, puzzle books, and decks of cards. The team distributed the gifts inside 5 Purple Tote Bags to the Good Samaritan Society at Echo Ridge. A lot of seniors in our nursing homes/assisted living centers in the area don’t have family close by and quite possibly will be alone for the holidays. It is because of programs like "Be a Santa to a Senior" that allows these people to know that someone is thinking about them and someone cares.
