Senior Services

Holiday Giving

 

Holiday meal certificates and Angel Tree tags are available at each center. Please help a senior in need and consider picking one up. Your support of Forsyth County older adults is greatly appreciated! 

 

Holiday Meal Certificate Program

You can provide the gift of meals to local homebound seniors by purchasing a meal certificate. Certificates are available for a day, week, month, year or any denomination you choose to contribute. Meals will be delivered to recipients through the Meals on Wheels program throughout the holiday season and year. This is a special opportunity to let the isolated elderly know you care. Certificates available November 1st.

 

Angel Tree Program

You can make a difference in the life of a local elder by providing them gifts at Christmas. The gift request tags (containing the name of a local older adult as well as gift ideas) are available beginning November 14. Please deliver your gift unwrapped in a gift bag with the Angel tag attached by December 1

 

Please note: If you are not able to visit one of our centers to purchase a certificate or receive a gift request, call (770) 781-2178 or email seniorservices@forsythco.com and we will be happy to help you.

Forsyth County Senior Services' mission is to provide engaging, impactful life enrichment programs and services for adults age 50 and better in Forsyth County.
