While many look forward to being with their families during the holiday season, sadly many seniors living in nursing homes don't have their families with them.
That's why area health care service centers like 'Home Instead Senior Care' in Rancho Cordova are pushing the 'Be a Santa to a Senior' program, where you can visit a participating location and pick up a senior citizen's gift request from the tree. All you need to do is purchase the requested gift and drop it back off.
Volunteers can also help wrap and deliver the presents to receiving locations like the Roseville Pointe Health & Wellness Center.
On Tuesday, ABC10's Frances Wang helped with delivering the gifts to a group of seniors at the Wellness Center.
