Senior Santa continues tradition



Brevard County TRIAD is working on the 18th annual Senior Santa Project. The goal of the Senior Santa project is to provide the elderly in nursing homes and hospice settings with a personal gift around the holidays.

Recipients of these gifts are residents who have little or no support in the area and would not otherwise receive a special gift when family and friends usually gather.

For 2017, TRIAD has adopted nearly 1,700 senior Brevard County 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; Viera Voice office in Suntree; Parrish Senior Solutions office in Titusville; the Titusville Police Department on John Glenn Boulevard in Titusville and the Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce office on U.S. 1 in Palm Bay.

Check at the Senior Santa tree location for a list of gift drop-off locations or go to for details.  All gifts purchased must be received by Dec. 5.

Donations are welcome, and TRIAD will do the shopping.   For information, call 321-544-3052.
