Holiday Help: Agency on Aging

Two more days until Thanksgiving! Are you ready? And before you know it, the holiday season will be in full force. This month, on the Doing Good blog, I’m featuring a daily opportunity to help out over the holidays. A more comprehensive list can be found in the Rappahannock United Way’s annual holiday opportunities guide.

Today’s opportunity comes from the Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging. That group is collecting gift cards that senior citizens can use for getting prescriptions, clothes and household items.

Cards can be dropped at the agency’s office,  171 Warrenton Road, Fredericksburg, Va. 22405, weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They can also be mailed to the above address.
