Why Choose This Cause: Performing everyday tasks can become difficult as we get older. By supporting senior services in our area, we can help our senior population remain independent and safe. Many fraud schemes target seniors, putting their finances at risk. This cause also aligns with plans at C&N to provide additional resources for our seniors and better serve our older customers.
Item Donations: Vary based on the organization and their needs.
Volunteer Opportunities: “Meals on Wheels,” Foster Grandparent Program, Senior Centers, etc. Could vary based on background check requirements. All volunteer opportunities could be impacted by COVID-19 restrictions.
Potential Partners: The Area Agency on Aging supports programs that provide food, transportation, housing, necessary modifications to their home, and care support for seniors to allow them to remain independent, as well as Senior Centers in every community that provides social interaction, warm meals, and educational programs. There are also Adult Care Centers throughout our footprint.
