VERNAL--More than 50 volunteers gathered at the Golden Age Center to assemble over 260 Sub for Seniors bags for seniors in the community who are in need this Christmas season. 

“The entire community pitched in. This is not just us, this is not just the Golden Age Center, this is tons of community people” said the Sub for Senior Committee. 

The bags were assembled on Tuesday and will be delivered to homes throughout Uintah County on Thursday. The contents of the bags are meant to supplement the food supply the seniors have, in addition to their ‘Meals on Wheels'. They are also receiving goodie bags full of comfort items including socks, slippers, coloring books, fuzzy blankets, soaps and pet food bags. 

The Golden Age Center has been doing the Sub for Seniors program for 5 years. The first year they had 90 recipients and this year it has grown to over 260. The committee says they believe the need in the area continues to grow each year.
