Secret Santa for Seniors

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 06:45

Unifor Local 673 took on a role three years ago to help make a difference in our community , The Secret Santa for Seniors Program focuses on providing a personalized Christmas gift to Nursing Home residents with no family of their own.  Those who participate include those Nursing Home residents who would otherwise not receive a gift on Christmas morning.  The program pairs a participating resident with a Unifor local 673 member or family.  Our Unifor Local 673 members include individuals who live across the Toronto Area and beyond.  We range in age from young adults to seniors with almost 90 years of experience! Our Local believes strongly in making a difference in the lives of others, and all of us believe that a little kindness really can make a big difference.  We are thrilled to be working with two Nursing Homes who have taken the time to develop a Wish List for each of their residents that truly reflects the wishes of each participant.

The City estimates that there are presently close to 500 seniors with no family of their own. If you feel you would like to be part of the Secret Santa Program and you would like to give the gift of kindness this holiday season, your Unifor Local 673 Community Service Committee can be contacted through email,,  or our Support Staff Monique Leger at, or myself at

We look forward to hearing back from you.
