ESCO’s Santa for a Senior Success
Three years ago, two ESCO employees came up with an idea to help out some seniors in communities we were partnered with. Fueled entirely by internal employee donations, 2014’s drive produced 32 gift bags for seniors in need of holiday cheer. The second year showed a modest improvement and 40 gift bags were assembled and distributed between two communities. This year, those numbers were blown right out of the water.
Thanks to a combined effort of ESCO’s leadership and employees’ generous donations, we managed to fill a grand total of 240 gift bags for seniors in need this year!
Here’s a peak at the inside of one of the 240 gift bags ESCO’s elves filled for seniors…
And here are a couple of ESCO elves in action, filling bags and sorting gifts!
All told, we were able to make gift bags for 14 different senior living communities. We asked each community to choose their residents most in need of a holiday pick me up, whether they receive our services or not, and let them know that we are thinking of them and want them to have the best holiday season possible. The gifts will be shipped out (or hand delivered if locations permits) later this week.
We look forward to making next year’s Santa for Seniors program even bigger. We believe that every senior should feel important during the busy holiday season, and strive to give our communities the best customer service possible.
