Santas for Seniors 2022

Santas for Senior 2022 is here!

The most wonderful time of the year is not always so wonderful for some of our clients who experience isolation and loneliness as a regular part of their daily existence. The holidays can be nearly too much to bear as those feelings compound.

We offer Santas for Seniors as a way to involve our communities across East Texas in blessing our clients with a special gift for Christmas. You can find a drop-off location near you, purchase items to place into the box, and all donated goods will be given to clients in your area. For example, gifts given in Athens, TX, are delivered to Meals On Wheels clients in the Athens area.

As a reminder, we serve over 2600 clients across East Texas in Gregg, Henderson, Smith, Van Zandt, Upshur, and Wood County! There is a site near you where you can participate in a variety of ways.

In addition to purchasing gifts to place in the drop-off boxes, we will also be needing local volunteers to help package up these gifts in gift bags with tissue paper. Please contact the site nearest you for information on when they will be having their “wrapping day.” You can call (903)593-7385 for additional information on volunteering for wrapping day in Tyler or to inquire about how to contact a site.

If you prefer to make a donation, you may do so here.

Hi Linda! Thank you for leaving a comment. Tri-County Meals On Wheels covers Cherokee, Anderson, and Rusk Counties so get in contact with them to see if they have a similar program for their clients. https://tri-countymow.org/
