Brighten the day of a local senior citizen this holiday season

Forsyth County Senior Services invites everyone to be a holiday angel to a local senior citizen in need by participating in the 2016 Holiday Gift Angels Program.

“The Holiday Gift Angels Program is a joy for Forsyth County Senior Services to host every year,” said Senior Services Director Ruthie Brew. “A gift from a stranger – however big or small – shows our seniors that they are thought of during the holiday season.”

Being a holiday angel is simple. Follow these steps:

1. Pick up a gift request tag at any of the three Forsyth County Senior Services locations:

  • Center at Charles Place, 595 Dahlonega Street Open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Sexton Hall Enrichment Center, 2115 Chloe Road Open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Hearthstone Lodge Community Center, 7305 Lanier Drive Open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

2. Acquire a gift. Each gift request tag lists the name of a local senior citizen along with a gift idea for him/her.

3. Bring the unwrapped gift – in a gift bag with the gift request tag attached – to any of the three Forsyth County Senior Services locations listed above weekdays by November 28.
