HOLIDAY CARING FOR OLDER ADULTS IN THE COMMUNITY

Spread warmth and cheer this holiday season by giving to local seniors in need with our Home Delivered Meals Holiday Gift Certificate Program. From now through December, 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 and accompanying gift certificates will be delivered to recipients through the Meals on Wheels program throughout the holiday season. This is a special opportunity to let the isolated and elderly know you care. Certificates may be purchased by coming into a center or over the phone.

You can also participate in our Holiday Gift Angels program. Angel gift tags with the name of an older adult, their gift wish, and donation instructions will be available in all centers by November 1. Gifts will be delivered to the recipients in December.

Note: Older adults in the homebound program will receive both meals and gifts, but the most urgent need each year is for the meals.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity!

Our Mission

The mission of Forsyth County's Senior Services Department is to be the focal point where older adults gather for services and activities that respond to their diverse needs and interests, enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage involvement in their community through programs designed to reduce isolation, improve nutritional health, support health and community education and provide access to more extensive services for seniors, caregivers and their families.
