Programs & Services
Angel Tree Program
Every holiday season, there are older neighbors without families or who spend the holidays alone. Angel tree gets the community members to give back by adopting an older "angel" and fill a box with goodies.
To be an "angel," one must be the recipient of one of the Council on Aging's services. Community members can either adopt angels or donate goods to help fill the angel tree boxes.
Once a month, Harvest Hope Foodbank helps improve health in lower income communities by providing nutritious, 100 percent domestic USDA Foods for those aged 60 and up. This program is open to anyone in the community.
For participants (currently in the Winnsboro area) needing a ride to the grocery store, trips can be arranged. Call the office at 803-635-3015 for more informaton.
Winnsboro Senior Center
Friends and neighbors aged 60 and up can become a part of the vibrant community at the Winnsboro Senior Center--a 5000 square foot facility dedicated to serving the seniors of Fairfield County. The facility boasts a large communal dining room, a library, a multipurpose room and an exercise room for use. Programs are offered daily along with a delicious, nutritionally balanced meal.
Once a month, community members can purchase a variety bag of fruits and vegetables for $6. Contact the FCCOA office at 803-635-3015 for more information.
Senior Farmer's Market Voucher Program
Senior Farmers market voucher is an income-based program older community members can apply for. If approved, they get a voucher that is redeemable at select farmers markets that are a part of the program.
For elder participants who are still active but not comfortable with driving, FCCOA offers a bus transport to take participants to and from the senior center. Bus transportation also takes participants on occasional outings. (Please keep an eye on the calendar for more information on trips.)
