December 17, 2013FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Residents can now participate in Forsyth County Senior Services' home-delivered meal gift certificate holiday program and help brighten the holiday season for Forsyth County homebound senior citizens.
Meals purchased with a holiday gift certificate through Forsyth County Senior Services will be delivered through the Meals on Wheels program.
Senior Services Director Michael Bohn said there is a continuous need for home-delivered meals for senior citizens.
"Anyone choosing to support the home-delivered meal holiday gift certificate program will be making a positive impact for our local seniors," he said. "Recent years have shown an increasing demand for our Meals on Wheels program, and that need typically grows during the holiday season."
Those interested in participating may choose to provide meals for a day, week, month or year. The cost is $3.53 for one meal, $17.65 for one week, $77.66 for one month and $917.80 for the entire year. Gifts may be tax-deductible.
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, 595 Dahlonega Street, Cumming, Ga. 30040.
All meals delivered will include a special certificate to wish happy holidays from the meal provider.
Senior Services has set a goal of delivering 4,500 meals to local senior citizens this holiday season.
