Golden-Agers tree brings gifts to seniors

by Taylor Nye

The Golden Agers Gift Tree is up at the Sulphur Springs Senior Citizens Center, according to director Karon Weatherman.

Every year, homebound seniors are asked to make a wish for a gift they would like. Their wishes are written down on a piece of paper and hung on a Christmas tree at the senior center.

Citizens choose a request from the tree and pick out that gift for the senior. 

“If you would like to adopt a Senior Citizen for Christmas please come and pick one out,” Weatherman said.

All gifts must be wrapped and back at the Senior Citizen Center between December 6 and December 17 for distribution by Christmastime. 

For more information, visit the senior center at 150 Martin Luther King Junior Drive or call 903-885-1661.
