Today, I invite you to join donors who are stepping forward with an extra year-end gift to provide more seniors in need with independence, dignity, and hope. These seniors are struggling and live on an average income of $12,000 a year or less.
Susanna is one of them. She’s 75 years of age and lives on less than $900 a month. She receives fresh, healthy food delivered directly to her home through our Healthy Foods Program. Susanna suffered a severe stroke and had to be hospitalized. While recovering at the stroke rehabilitation center, Susanna’s bank card and food stamps were both stolen.
Coming home weeks later to a refrigerator full of expired food, Susanna had no immediate way to pay for groceries. But because of YOU and fellow donors, St. Andrew’s was here for Susanna and restocked all that had been lost. With tears of gratitude, this elderly neighbor felt the love and comfort she needed to move forward. She’s been added to our Circle of Care Program wait list to receive additional help with housekeeping and personal care assistance for her daily needs.
