Secret Santa for a Senior delivers 1,300 gifts across Durham

The Secret Santa for a Senior program is delivering more than 1,300 gifts across the region this holiday season.

Co-ordinated by the Durham Elder Abuse Network (DEAN), the campaign sees area residents and sponsoring gift packages – including a personal needs item (such as shampoo, conditioner or lotion), a comfort item (a pillow, pajamas or winter clothing) and an interest item (a book, magazine or treat) – for elderly residents.

“We’ve had a really good response from the community,” said Beaverton resident Jennifer Josephson, chair of DEAN.

More than 280 gifts were delivered to seniors living in Brock Township, Uxbridge and Scugog.
