Fundraising

FBS can provide you with brochures and information, and money donation boxes to place at an office, school, or local business.  These locked boxes include a flyer showcasing Fort Bend Seniors programs. You are welcome to create your own flyer, we will provide the FBS logo and the information about our organization. Contact us to receive a money donation box.

Donation Drives

Many of our funding sources cover meals and delivery costs exclusively, but Fort Bend Seniors provides so much more to our seniors! We are always looking for community members and other organizations to partner with. Donation drives are great service projects for groups and helps with extra items our seniors need.
