Be a Santa to a Senior program running


Home Instead Senior Care is again sponsoring the Be a Santa to a Senior program in the Brainerd lakes area.

The program provides gifts and companionship to seniors who otherwise might not receive either this holiday season. Last year, the Brainerd program distributed 617 gifts to seniors and through the Home Instead Senior Care network, 1.5 million gifts were provided to more than 750,000 seniors throughout North America.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
