Santas needed to visit seniors

Home Instead Senior Care, working with Pasadena-based Partners in Care, is sponsoring the fourth annual "Be a Santa to a Senior" program, providing presents to seniors who otherwise might not be remembered this holiday season.

"We see many older adults who have no one during this festive season, and that makes for a very sad and lonely time," said David Dickens, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care offices serving Anne Arundel and Howard counties. "Whether they are in a nursing home or in their own homes, where more are choosing to stay, it's important to reach out those who are usually overlooked during this special time of the year."

Last year, area volunteers delivered 400 gifts to 175 seniors in Anne Arundel and Howard counties. Dickens hopes to serve even more older adults this holiday season.
