Published 12:00 am Thursday, July 8, 2021

WINSTON-SALEM — Many older adults in our community are alone, hungry and struggling to meet basic needs. Senior Services is partnering with Piedmont Federal Savings Bank for their 10th annual Christmas in July item drive to collect needed food, household and personal care supplies to help change the lives of Senior Services program participants for the better and help them to remain in their homes, living with dignity and aging with purpose.

Individuals, faith organizations, and civic groups are invited to donate items on the Christmas in July wish list now through July 31. The list includes canned goods and shelf-stable food items like cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter and soup. It also includes household helps, such as paper towels and dishwashing liquid, and personal care items like deodorant, body wash, and adult disposable undergarments. The complete wish list is available on the Senior Services website at www.seniorservicesinc.org.

Contributions and donations may be dropped off at any of the Forsyth County branches of Piedmont Federal Savings Bank or deliver your donations to Senior Services, 2895 Shorefair Drive. Financial donations are also appreciated and can be made online at https://bit.ly/2UEQuZn.
