Office for the Aging will be placing gift tags on the Christmas Tree in the Office for the Aging. Once the tree is in the lobby by the Department of Motor Vehicle tags will also be located on that tree.

These tags are for older adults in Herkimer County who are not likely to receive a gift this Christmas season. The tags will indicate if they are a man or woman and some ideas for a gift.

If you would like to help any of these older adults you can pick a tag from the tree. You do not need to purchase all the items on the tag they are only suggestions. The gifts can be placed in a gift bag with the gift tag that you chose from the tree. If you do not want wish to do a gift bag, you can donate a gift card from a local grocery store (Walmart, Hannaford, Price Chopper, Aldi’s included but not limited to).

Please have all tags and gifts back by Friday, December 10th.

I appreciate all of your assistance and I know that these gifts will bring a smile to older adults in our community.

If you have any questions please call our office at (315) 867-1121.

Thank you for your generosity.
