The impact of our care goes far beyond just providing a comfortable, safe home or ensuring they receive adequate medical care. We make a profound impact on their life, supporting them when they may have nowhere else to turn and unburdening them from the stress of being isolated and alone. Your gift, of any amount, is vital in allowing us to continue to help seniors when they need it the most.
In the face of COVID-19, we have been challenged to keep our seniors safe while still delivering the services they so desperately need. This new normal has put unprecedented pressure on our budget and staff, as all of our fundraising events have been canceled, and we are without the funding we count on to fully serve seniors. We need you now, more than ever.
All seniors, regardless of socioeconomic status, should have access to basic necessities, such as food, medical care and a safe home environment, and assistance with activities of daily living including bathing, grooming, laundry and housework.
We have always been here to help and support seniors when they need it the most, and our caregivers, staff and partners are focused on making a positive impact, now and in the future.
Over the past few months, we have expanded our services to meet the increasing needs of seniors — and we rely on the generosity of donors to continue providing this vital support.
This year, we remembered how much we are all connected. How the actions of one can affect many. How as a community, we can act together to create change. The 2020 Community Campaign for Seniors is a way for us to honor the connections we all share by meeting seniors’ basic needs.
