The Desert Valley Hospital lobby was the venue for the of the Be a Santa to a Senior Program.
This annual gift collection event helps seniors who are shut-ins or have no one to spend the holidays with.
Caregivers get a list of needs and/or wants from seniors in their care, and give Home Instead Senior Care their names, which are put on tags that go on Christmas trees located in businesses throughout the area.
People take a tag, buy the gifts and return it to the location.
The gifts are wrapped during a special event and then distributed to the seniors.
Trees are located in Walmart Apple Valley, and at Desert Valley Hospital and Foundation offices in Victorville.
