Be a 'Holiday Angel" for a Local Elder This Holiday Season
Forsyth County Senior Services invites residents to participate in the 2023 Holiday Gift Angels, Meal Sponsorship and Home Repair Programs throughout the holiday season.
Holiday Gift Angels Program: Personalized gift request tags containing the name of an older adult resident as well as a gift idea are available for participants to select and provide a holiday gift by:
- Picking up a gift request tag at Charles Places or Sexton Hall’s “Giving Tree.” Participants can also request a gift tag by contacting Senior Services at (770) 781-2178 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Acquire a gift. Each gift request tag lists the name of a local older adult and gift idea.
- Bring the unwrapped gift in a gift bag with the gift request tag attached to Charles Place or Sexton Hall during business hours by Dec. 1.
Those interested in purchasing a nutritious holiday meal and friendly visit/safety check to a local homebound older adult may choose to provide meals for a day, week, month or year. The cost for a meal certificate is $5 for one day, $25 for one week, $100 for one month and $1,200 for an entire year. Other donation amounts are also accepted and will be put towards this program. Meals will be delivered from Thanksgiving Day until New Year’s Day.
Home Repair Program:
Donations to this program will assist low income, isolated elders with repairs, safety modifications and property clean-ups. Much of the work is donated by volunteers, with funds primarily going to materials.
Checks for the Meal Sponsorship and Home Repair Programs should be made payable to Forsyth County Senior Services (FCSS) Holiday Giving Program and may be mailed or delivered to:
