ACCA and Home Instead Senior Care partner each year for the Be A Santa to A Senior Program. This year was the 10th annual wrapping party held at ACCA. Over 100 community volunteers came to help wrap over 4000 holiday presents for older adults in the Northeast Georgia area. Ornaments were picked from trees and wreaths throughout the community and people bought the items on the ornament.

Thank you Athens for being Santa to a Senior for to years running!
