First Annual Senior Santa Gift Drive A Huge Success!

Tom Derzypolski

(Fort Pierce, Fla.) -The Treasure Coast Connector (TCC) sponsored the first annual Senior Santa Gift Drive to benefit senior citizens throughout the community this holiday season. Santa and his elves jumped aboard the Treasure Coast Connector on Tuesday, December 20, 2005, to deliver gifts to seniors throughout St. Lucie and Martin Counties.

During the ten-day gift drive, hundreds of gifts were donated by the community. Santa and his helpers delivered the gifts to Martin Memorial Medical Center, Port St. Lucie Hospital and Lawnwood Medical Center, in hopes of spreading holiday cheer. The remaining gifts will be donated to the Meals on Wheels program and distributed with the holiday meal before Christmas.

"We are thrilled with the number of gifts donated," said Marianne Arbore, Transit Director. "Support from the community was overwhelming and we hope to start a tradition and make the Senior Santa Gift Drive an annual event."

As a gift to the community, free rides on the TCC will continue through December 31, 2005.

The Treasure Coast Connector began operation in 2002 and now connects the communities of St. Lucie and Martin Counties with three fixed routes. Service is scheduled Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. For more information call 722-464-8878 in St. Lucie County or 772-286-8818 in Martin County.
