Brevard County TRIAD is working on the 22nd annual Senior Santa Project and is in need of community assistance.

The goal of the Senior Santa project is to provide elderly nursing home residents with a personal gift around the year-end holidays.

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

For the 2021 holiday season, TRIAD has adopted 1,000 Brevard County nursing home residents to receive gifts. Santa face ornaments with specific items these seniors want or need have been placed on Senior Santa trees located at the Schechter Community Center at 1089 S. Patrick Drive in Satellite Beach; One Senior Place at 8085 Spyglass Hill Road in Viera; Titusville Police Department at 1100 John Glenn Blvd.; Parrish Senior Solution Center at 805 Century Medical Drive in Titusville and Palm Bay Police Department at 130 Malabar Road. The locations will have a list of where to drop off the gifts, or go to for details.

All gifts purchased must be returned by Wednesday, Dec. 8. TRIAD asks that all gifts be returned unwrapped in a shopping bag with the Santa face ornament corresponding to each recipient.

Monetary 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.
