Yarmouth police seek support for Secret Santa for Seniors program

Donations and delivery help will make for holiday cheer

The Yarmouth Police Department is looking for some holiday helpers to make their Secret Santa for Seniors program a success. The department, working with the Yarmouth Police Community Advisory Team, is hoping to bring some joy into the lives of Yarmouth seniors who may find themselves alone this holiday season.

To that end, Yarmouth police are asking community members to donate gifts for their Secret Santa for Seniors program. All of the items will be packaged and given to seniors in need just before Christmas.

Suggested items include socks, slippers, hats, scarves, gloves, sweaters, dish towels, blankets, cough drops, candy cans, hard candies, chocolates, tea, coffee, jams, crackers, lip balm, magnified mirrors, large print books, gift cards or Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins or Celtics items.

Donations may be dropped off at the Yarmouth Police Station. Volunteers are welcome to help package the gifts on Thursday, December 19 at 6 p.m. at the station. The gifts will be hand delivered the following morning at 9 a.m. Delivery volunteers are also needed.

For additional information or to volunteer to help with the program, call Lt. Patrick Carty at 508-775-0445 ext. 2116.
