Be a Santa to a Senior Photo 2015A room full of warm hearts and hot cocoa met at the Delmanor Wynford on December 2nd 2015 to wrap holiday gifts graciously donated by local businesses.

Lumacare (formerly Downsview Services for Seniors) has partnered with Home Instead Senior Care for a fifth year in their Be a Santa to a Senior program.

Throughout the last five years, the program has enabled Lumacare to hand deliver meaningful gifts to over 600 high-needs individuals in and around the North York community. The program has engaged both local businesses as well as senior community programs to provide holiday gifts to deserving community members.

This past December, Lumacare was able to provide nearly 100 Seniors with personalized gifts during the holiday season.

We are thankful for the businesses who came together to ensure that everyone had a little joy during the holiday season and thank everyone who contributed gifts and their time to make this possible. Being able to hand-deliver the gifts and see everyone’s face light up in excitement is a tradition we are fortunate to engage in.

Wishing everyone love and light in 2015. Lumacare To find out more about the Be a Santa to a Senior program, please visit the BASTAS website.
