Santa's Seniors

Over the past 18 years, STEP Office of Aging has partnered with the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, the Lock Haven Express, Backyard Broadcasting, and many other area businesses to coordinate the Santa’s Seniors Program. This annual program provides gift boxes to senior citizens who receive Meals on Wheels through STEP’s Office of Aging. Often, these gifts are the only holiday items received by our home-bound seniors. 

This year, more than 100 Meals on Wheels recipients in Lycoming and Clinton counties received Santa's Seniors gift deliveries over the holiday season! 

STEP Office of Aging staff sorted donations from the community and employees of C&N Bank packed the gift sets during the weeks leading up to the holiday season. Instead of a single boxed delivery, large tote bags were delivered three times during the holiday season by Meals on Wheels volunteers and Pennsylvania State Police. Hats, gloves, scarves, toiletries, word puzzles, snacks, breakfast foods, and single-serve pantry staples were among the items included in the bags gifted to our most vulnerable seniors, often forgotten during the holidays.
