With the help of the Atlanta community Senior Connections was awarded a Toyota Sienna Minivan to help with our Meals on Wheels deliveries. Unfortunately, sequestration and the government shutdown have combined to pose a severe threat in getting home delivered meals to seniors in need.
You can help by directing your #GivingTuesday gift to our “Pack the Car” fund. Our aim is to raise $12,000 – enough to provide 2,000 home delivered meals to seniors throughout Atlanta.
Simply receiving a home delivered meal each day can significantly impact the length of time a senior remains independent in their own home? For $6 you can help a senior remain where they wish- at home.
Did you also know that Georgia ranks as the 7th worst state for senior hunger? Over 17% of Georgia seniors struggle with food security.
When you donate online, simply type #GivingTuesday in the notes field and add your contribution to the fund.
