Senior Services offers two ways to brighten a resident’s holiday season

Forsyth County Senior Services invites residents to participate in the 2019 Holiday Gift Angels and Home-Delivered Meals Holiday Gift Certificate Programs throughout the holiday season.

Holiday Gift Angels Program: Personalized gift request tags containing the name of a local senior citizen as well as a gift idea are available at any Forsyth County Senior Services location. To become a holiday gift angel:

  1. Pick up a gift request tag for a local senior citizen at any of the three Forsyth County Senior Services locations.
  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 during business hours by Dec. 2, 2019.

Home-Delivered Meals Holiday Gift Certificate Program: Participants can give the gift of a nutritious meal, friendly visit, and safety check to a local homebound senior. Meals purchased with a holiday gift certificate through Forsyth County Senior Services will be delivered through the Meals on Wheels program.

Those interested in purchasing a holiday gift certificate may choose to provide meals for a day, week, month or year. The cost for a meal certificate is $4 for one day, $20 for one week, $85 for one month and $1,000 for an entire year.

Checks should be made payable to Forsyth County Senior Services, Holiday Gift Certificate Program and may be mailed or delivered to:

Forsyth County Senior Services
7305 Lanier Drive
Cumming, GA 30041

All meals delivered from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day will include a special certificate from the meal provider with a holiday message for the recipient. Senior Services has set a goal of delivering 4,000 meals to local senior citizens this holiday season.
