We are once again launching our Christmas gift-giving campaign, ‘Be a Santa’, asking the local community to donate gifts to distribute to older people across West Lothian
Home Instead West Lothian is excited to once again be launching their Christmas gift-giving campaign, ‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ for the fourth year running. The campaign asks the local community to donate gifts to distribute to older people across West Lothian this Christmas.
Since opening in October 2020, each Christmas Home Instead West Lothian team up with various charities and community groups in the local area to identify isolated elderly people who may not otherwise receive a present over the festive season.
We are asking members of the public to get involved and purchase a gift for such a local older person, and have established various collection points throughout West Lothian where people can donate their gifts.
We are also running an Amazon Wish-List, where people can choose and order gifts to send directly to the Home Instead office. Details of how and where to donate can be found below.

Recommendations for gifts to donate include toiletries, confectionary, jigsaws, puzzle books, slippers and socks, or small items that elderly people usually appreciate.
After the 11th of December, Home Instead volunteers will collect the gifts, allocate them to a suitable recipient and wrap them. These will then be distributed to our partner community groups, who will deliver them to local elderly people in time for Christmas
