SSNF hosts Angel Tree Giving program and gift wrapping .

Angel Tree

During the holiday season, Senior Services North Fulton and our team of dedicated staff and volunteers spread cheer and gift-giving throughout North Fulton. The holidays are a lonely time for many of our seniors, especially those who live alone.

The Angel Tree Giving program helps lift their spirits. Seniors submit a wish list, which students, volunteers and organizations fulfill. Many of the seniors in our program request gift cards to a local Kroger, Publix, Walmart, or Target to purchase personal items such body lotion and shampoo, or even groceries and medications. This year we are asking the community's help to fill the requests for gift cards.

If you would like to donate a gift card from Kroger, Publix, Walmart, or Target to help a senior this Holiday season, please mail it to:

Ms. Deena Takata Volunteer Manager Senior Services North Fulton 3060 Royal Boulevard South, Suite 130 Alpharetta, GA 30022

Community Gift Wrap Day

On Dec. 16 the senior center will host a Community Gift Wrap Day. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. friends from the community can stop by and let seniors wrap Christmas gifts. There is no charge, but donations will be accepted.

Also, if you would like to donate supplies -- wrapping paper, gift bags, boxes, gift name tags, tape and Christmas cards -- we will accept them. Last year's left overs are perfect!

To find out more information about The Angel Tree Program call 770-993-1906 ext. 230. For the gift wrapping day, contact Melinda Ross, Milton Senior Center manager, at 470-554-0758 or
