Thank you!

The City of Ventura’s Senior Services team would like to extend a BIG thank you to everyone who participated in and contributed to our 2021 Santa to a Senior program. Thanks to your generous donations, over 250 gifts were distributed to Home Delivered Meals program participants packaged with their meals over the holidays. Lastly, we would like to thank Joe and Jennifer McIntire from Home Instead for the wonderful partnership and dedication to our senior community.

Our Goal

Provide joy and holiday cheer to our community's homebound seniors.

2021 General Information

To become a Santa to a senior, you can either visit the Parks & Recreation Department located at City Hall near Room 226 and choose a specific request directly off this year's Santa to a Senior program tree, or you can choose a small gift from the list below, purchase the gift, and then drop it off at one of our designated Parks and Recreation locations.

It is not necessary to wrap your gift; unwrapped gifts may be dropped off at any of the gift drop-off locations listed below.

The gifts will be delivered to homebound seniors enrolled in our Senior Nutrition Meal Program during the week of December 20, 2021.

Thank you for helping us spread holiday joy this season!
