JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

An organization that helps senior citizens in northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri needs you this holiday season.

Home Instead Senior Care has a special tree on display in the Walmart location on Parker Road.

It's not just decorated with ordinary ornaments. The name of a senior and a few items they could use to make this holiday season a little better are written on an ornament.

Ashley Taylor with Walmart said it means a lot to be part of a project aiming to help the community.

“When you come by to Walmart and you buy your groceries, stop by here.” Taylor said. “Get an ornament. It's not a lot of things and it's not expensive."

"They just want the basic needs for life and for living. Why not let us be the ones to give it," said Taylor

The tree will be up until Christmas Eve.
