Adopt banner details 2020

Get on Santa’s good list by following these important instructions.
Email our Gifting Elf at adopt@besa.org with any questions!

#1

Enter your email below to view your senior’s wish list details.

Some of our senior friends share personal stories or details about their life in the gift request.
Out of respect for their privacy, Santa requests that you do not share their personal details on social media.

#2

Purchase, wrap, and tag your present(s) by December 5th.
Please try to place all gifts into 1 box or bag.

PRO SANTA TIP: While not required, boxes are preferred. It helps with loading the presents into the sleigh!

PRO SANTA TIP: Feel free to include a card. Our seniors love personal notes!

#3

Click and print the gift tag. Every Secret Santa is now assigned a unique QR code, which will print on the gift tag. Your senior's information, including name, client number, program letter, and case manager's name will autofill.

PRO SANTA TIP: Do you have multiple packages for 1 senior? No problem! Just print and attach the same tag for each gift. Want to make it easier? Place everything in a single box or bag.

PRO SANTA TIP: Did you adopt more than 1 senior? Please make sure when printing and attaching the tag(s), it's for the correct gift request.

#4

You do not need to purchase every item requested.
The average spent on a senior is $45.

PRO SANTA TIP: Some of our Santas like to include extra goodies like candy or lotion—that’s okay as long as it’s not perishable or homemade.

PRO SANTA TIP: A few seniors have requested higher priced gifts. Wanna switch seniors? No problem, just let us know!
