black-coupleCobb Senior Services staff has launched Christmas365 (formerly known as Senior Santa) as a way to connect the needs of seniors in Cobb County with the generosity of the community on a year-round basis. Your gift to Christmas365 may be made any time during the year, not just during the holidays. Christmas365 provides special request items and generic gifts to seniors who are experiencing financial issues and need assistance. Each year, care managers identify clients who would benefit from having such things as household appliances, special medical equipment, nutritional supplements or clothing. Often, these seniors are isolated from family and community or are otherwise vulnerable. For more info, call 770-528-5364.
