Thank you CD102.5 for being Adopt A Senior's Media Sponsor! Their support helped Santa spread good cheer via the airwaves and their listeners adopted over 100 of our senior friends, like Senior Mary. Read her story below!

Secret Santa Seniors: Meet Mary

Mary would love nothing more than a Christmas visit from her son, but she’d be pretty excited about some Avon perfume, too. This year, Besa aimed to engage hundreds of Secret Santas to delight 1,000 local senior citizens like Mary with gifts. Columbus, you delivered—and then some, adopting all of our seniors within a week (and prompting us to add 200 more!). Our Secret Santas will deliver more than $55,000 in gifts to 1,250 Central Ohio seniors this holiday season. Here, meet one of our special seniors.
