Annual Secret Santa Appeal
Become a Secret Santa
As COVID 19 continues to compel us in to temporary lockdowns, I would like you to send a thought to our elderly citizens, many of who spend most of their lives alone at home. In my work I hear about the significant health effects of isolation on elderly people in the community. The increase of dementia, heart disease, anxiety, depression and more.
What can we do to ease this negative impacts? Well, we can reach out and let our elderly know that someone cares about them. A simple gesture of a gift can let them know we are thinking of them.
I encourage you to support STAR Community Services and ‘Become a Secret Santa’. Your donation will bring joy to an elderly person who may be struggling to cope with being alone Christmas Day. STAR volunteers will deliver the gifts and hampers to over 1,000 elderly people in need.
I can’t even imagine not having my family around me at this time of year. Let’s come together to show our elderly that we care.
