We have an online donation system which can be found at  Select Newton County Senior Activity and Wellness Center in the drop down menu under "Donation Designation*."

"We will not discontinue this essential service for our community. You can do your part by staying home and helping to slow down the spread of COVID-19. If you are a senior over 60 who is staying at home, afraid to get out because of the pandemic and need food please give us a call.  870-446-5531.
