Give gift of meals to local seniors this holiday season


Senior Services offers home-delivered meal gift certificate program


November 13, 2012
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Local residents can make the 2012 holiday season brighter for Forsyth County homebound senior citizens by taking part in the Home-Delivered Meal Holiday Gift Certificate Program. Meals purchased with a holiday gift certificate through Forsyth County Senior Services will be delivered through the Meals on Wheels program.

Senior Services Manager Valerie Rhoads said there continues to be a growing need for home-delivered meals for senior citizens.

"Those who choose to help support the Home-Delivered Meal Holiday Gift Certificate Program will be making a positive impact for our local seniors," she said. "Over recent years, there has been 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 the year. The cost is $3.48 for one meal, $17.40 for one week, $76.56 for one month, and $904.80 for the entire year. All gifts are tax deductible.

All meals delivered from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day 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.

Checks should be made payable to Forsyth County Senior Services, Holiday Gift Certificate Program, and may be mailed or delivered to the following address: Forsyth County Senior Services, 595 Dahlonega Street, Cumming, Ga. 30040.

For more information on donations or volunteering, please call Forsyth County Senior Services at 770-781-2178 or email djgrizzle@forsythco.com.
