Many seniors need care and support to live with dignity and to age with purpose. Senior Services’ annual event, Christmas in July, is a reminder that these needs are year ‘round, not just in December. 

This year marks the 10th Christmas in July item drive for seniors. By providing a few basic household essentials and personal care items, you can help seniors navigate the stress and difficulty they often face and allow them to remain in their homes.

You can also encourage your faith community, civic or business group to join in supporting Senior Services. As you make regular shopping trips throughout the month of July, please consider dropping a few extra items in your cart. Donations can be delivered to Senior Services, 2895 Shorefair Drive, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., or at any branch of Piedmont Savings Bank: 201 S. Stratford Road, Winston-Salem; 505 Pineview Drive, Kernersville; or 3701 Clemmons Road, Clemmons. 

Here is a partial list of suggested items. For a complete list, visit

Hygiene/Health: antibacterial liquid soap, deodorant, mouth wash, Chap Stick, body lotion
