Home Instead Senior Care is sponsoring a Giving Tree at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. To “be Santa to a senior,” members of the public are invited to pick an ornament and provide a much needed holiday gift to a senior in need. Home Instead Senior Care volunteers will wrap and deliver the presents. As an example, a request written on one ornament was for a warm house dress and socks. Photo by Karen Kendall
