The COVID-19 pandemic has made it harder for seniors to connect with loved ones, go to work, and volunteer in their communities. As Bob Kelly argues in this op-ed, the loss of seniors in the public sphere has come at a tremendous cost to the San Diego region.
A grant from San Diego Seniors Community Foundation allowed the Ramona Senior Center to bring joy to its clients with a socially-distanced drive-thru Christmas party.
SDSCF provided more than $31,000 in grants to 12 different senior centers to bring holiday cheer to isolated seniors across San Diego.
Two SDSCF grants will help isolated seniors at the Neighborhood House Association Senior Center access online programs and enjoy some holiday cheer.
SDSCF has awarded a second round of grants from the No Senior Alone initiative to bring joy and comfort to older San Diegans who will be alone this holiday season.
