The Senior Assistance Center needed a pick up truck!

July 2016  The Senior Assistance Center desperately needed a pick up truck to keep the flow of food going. We have many sources that donate food but it is up to us to pick it up. A (new to us) pick up truck was offered to us for $6000.  We sent out a plea on Facebook, youtube and our website to help us raise the money needed for this acquisition.

Our Pick Up Truck became a reality a month later!!!
We were very proud and excited to announce that an anonymous donor presented a check to us in the amount of $5,000 to purchase the (new to us) pickup truck. With that generous donation and many other smaller donations we were able to purchase that truck. We thank you all so much for your generosity and your continued support. We appreciated your donations!
Thank you for believing in us, and our mission.

Staff and Volunteers getting the food bank ready distribution.

Our staff and volunteers work every week Monday thru Thursday getting the food ready to distribute either at our onsite location on 44th Ave. or at one of many offsite locations served by our Mobile Food Van.  We have expanded our variety and reach because of these dedicated volunteers.  We could not do it without them.

Kroenke Sports Volunteers

These 3 volunteers came and helped get our Mobile Food Van stocked and ready to go to one of our many off site locations to distribute self-selected food items for seniors.  We appreciate our volunteers immensely.  We could not accomplish our mission without them.

Humana Volunteer at work.

A group of 9 from Humana came and volunteered to help in any way they could.  We appreciate all their efforts in some of the most mundane jobs. Their efforts make such a big difference in the operation of the Senior Assistance Center.

 

Holiday Party for our Volunteers

Our volunteers are the life blood of the Senior Assistance Center.  They come and donate their time and expertise in so many different ways.  We can never thank them enough!  Our room was filled and overflowing by all our wonderful volunteers.  Our Board members were doing the serving this dayl
