CLEVELAND — A local program is bringing the holiday season to seniors throughout the region.

The Be a Santa to a Senior program runs from now through December 12.

The program brings the Christmas season to lonely and isolated seniors in Cleveland and Akron.

Businesses participating in the program will display a Be a Santa to a Senior Christmas tree in or near their store. Each tree will include ornaments with seniors’ first names and their gift request. Shoppers can then pick an ornament and buy the gift requested.
