BREVARD COUNTY ― Brevard County TRIAD is working on the 21st Annual Senior Santa Project. The goal of the Senior Santa project is to provide the elderly in nursing homes with a personal gift around the holidays. Recipients of these gifts are residents who have no family or support in the area and would not otherwise receive a special gift, when it is time to celebrate the season.

For the 2020 holiday season, TRIAD has adopted about 900 senior Brevard County nursing home residents to receive gifts. To accomplish this, they need assistance from the community. Santa face ornaments with specific items these seniors want or need have been placed on Senior Santa trees located at the Schechter Community Center in Satellite Beach; One Senior Place on Spyglass Hill Road in Viera; Parrish Senior Solutions office on Century Medical Drive in Titusville; Titusville Police Department on John Glenn Blvd. and Palm Bay Police Department on Malabar Road. Check at the Senior Santa tree locations for a list of Gift Drop Off locations or visit http://brevardtriad.org/ for details. All gifts purchased must be returned by Wednesday, Dec. 9. TRIAD asks that all gifts be returned unwrapped in a shopping bag with the Santa head of the recipient.

Donations are welcome, and TRIAD will do the shopping. Mail donations to Brevard County TRIAD, Inc. P.O. Box 410518, Melbourne, FL 32941.

For more information, contact Terry Stone at 321-537-6752.
