The Banks County EMA-E-911 is collecting blankets and ornaments for senior citizens in nursing homes and assisted care homes and to seniors that attend the county senior citizen's center.

The goal is 500 blankets this year. The department is seeking donations of small throw blankets, small to medium plastic or wood ornaments and holiday ribbon (1/2 inch or less).

The deadline for donations is Dec. 11.

All donations can be dropped off at the box in the board of commissioner's office in the Annex Building in Homer or by calling 706-677-1234 or emailing for pick-up.
