    Get Involved


    In June, Resources for Seniors is sponsoring a "Christmas in July" program. Many older adults have difficulty affording sundries and household supplies, as most of these items are not covered under SNAP (food stamps) benefits. Items in include toothpaste, toilet paper, tissues, dish soap, laundry detergent, fabric softener sheets, shampoo/conditioner, shaving cream, razors, paper towels, hand soap pumps, lotion, body wash, disinfecting wipes, sponges, trash bags, saran wrap/tinfoil, socks, and non-perishable food (like stuffing, rice, mac/cheese, pasta, stovetop meal packs, etc.) Items can be dropped off at the main office 1110 Navaho Drive, 4th floor between 8-4:30 M-F, or at the Northern Wake Senior Center from 8:30-2:30 M-F at 235 East Holding Avenue in Wake Forest.

    ABC11 Together is proud to be partnering with Ricci Law Firm and to be a part of supporting those who are making a difference where we live.
