In the last month we've been encouraged by the amazing progress San Diego County has made in vaccinating seniors, healthcare workers, and other essential members of our community. After a long, lonely year, we've finally reached a turning point in the pandemic.
Vaccinated seniors can now begin to resume activities that have been on hold for a year – like hugging their grandkids! But there's still work to be done to make it safe for older people to return to public life. We need to invest in creating more senior-friendly outdoor spaces, and make indoor spaces safer at senior centers and other places where older people gather.
Through our No Senior Alone initiative, SDSCF is raising money to do just that. We are only $236,000 away from reaching our $1 million goal! Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are funding projects and programs to help seniors stay active, engaged, and connected to their communities so they can live healthy, vibrant lives.
We hope you will join us in improving the lives of San Diego’s seniors by making a gift to the No Senior Alone campaign, which will be doubled through our matching challenge. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our efforts. More to come!
