This is the 10th year for Home Instead Senior Care to conduct the local program.

This year program coordinators hope to collect gifts for more than 200 local older adults.

Home Instead Senior Care Program Director Phillip Kennedy joined Andrew Douglas at the Action News 5 Digital Desk to talk about the most popular gifts and how you can give back.
