Be a Santa to a Senior

The need for community support around local seniors who might otherwise be overlooked during the holiday season is especially great this year, organizers say. Be a Santa to a Senior, a program that collects, wraps and delivers gifts to lonely and needy seniors in Mecklenburg County will have sponsorship trees at four Dilworth Coffee locations through Dec. 16: 1235 B East Blvd.; SouthPark Mall 4400 Sharon Road, Charlotte; the Shoppes at Highland Creek, 5818 Prosperity Church Road; C-9 and 110A Matthews Station St., Matthews.

Tree ornaments feature an area senior’s first name and gift requests; holiday shoppers can buy the items listed, wrap them and return them to the store with ornament attached. Details: 704-344-0801; www.beasantatoasenior.com.
