FRANKLIN COUNTY OFFICE OF AGING TO CONDUCT 2nd ANNUAL SENIOR GIVING TREE
The holiday season can be a difficult and lonely time for our fifty plus population in Franklin County. Some Senior Citizens have no family members and they might not receive a holiday gift. However, you can us help by picking a star off our holiday giving tree. Your donation will help bring some holiday cheer to those over fifty plus in need in your own backyard. The Office of Aging is working with various local non- profit groups to make sure we provide much needed items to brighten their lives during the holiday season.
If you would like to help, please come by the Essig Recreation Center at 295 Technology Drive Rocky Mount, VA 24151 and pick up a star with a Senior Citizen’s gift request on it. After shopping please bring back the items back unwrapped to the Essig Recreation Center by December 11th.
Last year we were able to give out 55 bags of Holiday cheer to local Senior Citizens. All items collected will be put into reusable cloth bags and given to seniors who appreciate your efforts and assistance during one of the most beautiful times of the year.
