Our Senior Stocking Drive is under way, and perhaps over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend you’ll have a chance to pick up a few of the items on our wish list. You can truly make a wonderful difference in the life of an older adult in our community!
If you’ve already collected Senior Stocking wish list items, you can drop them off at any Forsyth County Piedmont Federal Savings branch office or bring them to the Senior Services Center, 2895 Shorefair Drive. Help us make sure that our seniors are not forgotten at Christmastime. Thank you for caring!

How to Access the Williams Center
Road work on Cloverdale Avenue has made it very difficult - BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE - to access Senior Services' Williams Adult Day Center. What you need to do to get to the Williams Center is turn into the parking lot behind Miller Plaza and follow the white signs that have been placed there to guide you to the Williams Center parking lot, with which the Miller Plaza lot connects.
