Atascosa County Christmas Elderly Project Target (ACCEPT) 2022 will once again be providing a blanket Christmas gift, along with a food voucher, to elderly county residents in need. You do need to register for the program to receive these items.
ACCEPT volunteers will continue to set up at various locations around Atascosa County to take applications to reach as many county elderly residents as possible.
Genny Rakowitz of ACCEPT explained that because there will not be an application site in Poteet, residents of Poteet are encouraged to apply at the Pleasanton site. However, you may apply at any location.
This program is for Atascosa County seniors age 60 or older. Here are the application dates and sites:
