Give the gift of meals to homebound seniors this holiday season



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Give the gift of a nutritious meal, friendly visit and safety check to a local homebound senior citizen this holiday season by participating in the 2017 Home-Delivered Meals 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.

“The Meals on Wheels program does not only provide a warm and healthy meal. A meal delivery offers seniors valuable social interaction and a safety check,” said Senior Services Director Ruthie Brew. “Forsyth County Senior Services is proud of the support this program receives – not only during the holidays, but year-round. These meal deliveries truly make a difference for a senior in need.”

Those interested in purchasing a holiday gift certificate may choose to provide meals for a day, week, month or year. The cost is $3.68 for one day, $18.40 for one week, $80.96 for one month and $956.80 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 7305 Lanier Drive Cumming, Ga. 30041.

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 4,000 meals to local senior citizens this holiday season.
