Vice Mayor Rob McNelis stopped by Hill Creek Elementary School last week and helped local students decorate bags to be used for gift wrapping as part of the Be a Santa to a Senior program.
Be a Santa to a Senior is an annual campaign delivering gifts and spending quality time with local needy seniors during the holiday season.
Here’s how you can help these struggling seniors: Pick up ornaments with the first names of seniors and their gift requests from Christmas trees, which will be up at La Mesa Adult Enrichment Center, 8450 La Mesa Boulevard, on Nov. 12 through Dec. 11. Buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornaments attached. A community gift-wrapping event, when hundreds of the presents will be wrapped, will be held Dec. 13 at 3 p.m. at the Home Instead Senior Care office in La Mesa.
