RCSD teams up with Home Instead Senior Care

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott asks you to be a part of the Annual BE A SANTA TO A SENIOR Project

Sheriff Leon Lott announced today the Richland County Sheriff’s Department Project HOPE (Helping Our Precious Elderly), has once again teamed up with the Home Instead Senior Care®, Chick-fil-A and Pink Sorbet to provide gifts to seniors who otherwise might not receive a gift during this holiday season.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that anyone can stop now through December 10, 2016 and take an ornament from the tree. The Sheriff added that when you return the gift to Chick-fil-A (229 Bush River Road) and Pink Sorbet (2726 Devine Street). Please leave it unwrapped and attach the ornament that displays the senior’s name. Volunteers will then collect the unwrapped gifts, wrap them on December 12th, and deliver the gifts to area seniors on December 14th.

Rene Kilburn, Owner of Home Instead Senior Care stated that, “Be a Santa to a Senior gives back to older adults in our area, many of whom have had significant, positive influence on our lives, during this season of giving, we encourage shoppers to buy a little extra to say thank you to these community members.”
