Holiday music is already playing at the stores, so you know what that means ... time to give to someone less fortunate.

The local Home Instead Senior Care office is partnering with retailers and community organizations to help seniors through the holiday season. Gifts will be collected and distributed to seniors who might otherwise be alone.

On Monday Nov. 19, Christmas trees go up at the following locations: K-Mart at 7055 E. Broadway Blvd., Deco-Art for Living at 2612 E. Broadway Blvd, Rocco's Little Chicago Pizzeria at 2707 E. Broadway Blvd., and Home Instead Senior Care, at 3208 N. Tucson Blvd.

To play Santa, pick an ornament off a tree, buy the items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store with the ornament attached.

From Monday, Dec. 3, through Tuesday, Dec. 18, gift wrapping will be done between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Home Instead Senior Care, 3208 N. Tucson Blvd. Volunteer gift wrappers are welcome.

From Tuesday, Dec. 18, through Friday, Dec. 21, gifts will be delivered.
