Blankets, toiletries and other necessities are some of the items on seniors’ wish lists as part of the Be a Santa to a Senior program.

MARYVILLE, Mo. — On the branches of a special Christmas tree in the storefront of the Sears Hometown Store hang miniature Christmas lists, a few wishes each for something that will bring a little joy beyond the holiday season. Most of them are simple — bath towels, soft food, an alarm clock with big numbers — but all of them are about making a connection at Christmas.

The wishes come from area seniors who otherwise might not receive presents this holiday season through the Be a Santa to a Senior program, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care.

Seniors who might otherwise not receive a present this holiday season can receive one from good Samaritans who stop by the Sears Hometown Store in Maryville and participate in Home Instead Senior Care’s Be a Santa to a Senior program. Participants can purchase gifts from seniors’ wish lists through Dec. 20.
