Blair Senior Services, Inc. Home Delivered Meals Program is participating in the GIVE65 Event to help seniors right here in Blair County.
Your gift, in any amount, will make a real difference in people’s lives and in our community as we strive to continue to serve Blair County’s older residents.
There are family members, neighbors and friends in our community with limited resources who need your help. As we age, things that we take for granted such as bathing, a hot meal and transportation, become a real challenge. Unfortunately, government funding is not sufficient to meet the needs that exist in our community. The Home Delivered Meals Program is one of the most basic ways that Blair Senior Services, Inc. can accomplish its mission of meeting the nutritional needs and improving and maintaining the health and well-being of older individuals in our community. Over the last year, the Agency has served some 10,000 consumers. Of those consumers, 7,000 are older individuals, the majority of which have incomes near or below the poverty level. We’re asking for your help as our Agency strives to continue to our county’s older residents.
Our Goal is $25,000
We have the chance to not only receive up to $5,000 in matching funds, but we are also competing for an additional $10,000 in financial rewards based on how much we raise or how many donors give.
