Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Many senior citizens will spend the holidays alone and may not have any Christmas presents to open. You can change that.

The SOWEGA council on aging serves about five thousand seniors in 14 counties. They're looking for people interested in adopting a senior and spending about $25 to buy that person something they want for the holidays.

Kay Hind said, "These are people, probably, who live alone, who are on a limited income and it doesn't cost that much and is a way to make somebody happy."

If you are willing to spend more than $25, you can help buy eyeglasses or important items. If you would like to adopt a senior, call the SOWEGA council on Aging at 432-1124.
