Event date: December 7th
ElderHelp is urging the citizens of San Diego to rally around its senior community this holiday season and has created an amazing way to help make a difference through giving toHoliday Angels. This special program, in partnership with the United Parcel Service (UPS), will deliver a festive holiday plant and gift card to the more than 300 senior citizens in the care of ElderHelp of San Diego this holiday season.

There is no way to feel more joy or more fulfillment this season, then to support someone who would not otherwise receive a visitor or a gift during the holidays. For many in our care, this may be the only gift and visitor they see throughout the holidays.
– Deborah Martin, ElderHelp CEO/Executive Director
