In less than a week, 500 fixed-income seniors were adopted through the Besa Holiday Drive. This December, Besa elves will collect over 1,500 presents and with the support of a very big sleigh, deliver the gifts to the senior agency. 

If you adopted -- we'll see you on December 6th between 12p-2p!

Didn't get a chance to adopt a senior and still want to give back this holiday season? No problem! We have another fantastic way for you to get involved! The Van Buren Homeless Family Shelter recently opened in the Franklinton neighborhood. This winter, the shelter will be home to hundreds of families in need of a roof and support system. 

Join Besa as we give back to families in need this holiday season. Click the link to shop the Besa Wish List. Your gifts can be delivered directly to Besa via Amazon or you can drop them off on December 6th at Santa's Workshop!

Cheers to your impact!

Hundreds of seniors across Central Ohio are up for Secret Santa adoption this holiday season. Most are asking for basic necessities, including: blankets, sweatshirts, cleaning supplies, and pet food. Join Besa as we help fulfill their wish lists! 

  1. Sign up on this page and let us know how many seniors you'd like to adopt. The average cost per senior is $40.
  2. We'll reply back with a senior and his/her wish list.
  3. Purchase, wrap, and tag the presents.
  4. Drop your presents off on Sunday, December 6th, at our Santa Workshop (600 Goodale), and we'll make sure they get delivered in time for the Holidays!
Thank you to The Columbus Foundation, Kaufman Development and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams for sponsoring this year's drive!
