Last week, SDSCF announced the first round of grant awards from our No Senior Alone initiative to combat social isolation during COVID-19. Thanks to the generous support of our donors and partners, we gave $195,209 to nine local organizations supporting vulnerable seniors in San Diego County.
The organizations we are funding take unique approaches to reduce isolation – many are enabled by technology, while others support seniors offline through more traditional means like music and exercise. It’s a diverse collection of programs that will improve the lives of older people across the county – from Oceanside to City Heights – and we are so proud to see it come to life.
This week as we celebrate Thanksgiving, we could not be more thankful for the hard-working people who are keeping seniors engaged and connected this holiday season. Caregivers, senior centers, healthcare workers, volunteers, friends, family members, and so many others play a role in supporting our aging neighbors. We hope you will also do what you can to ensure that no senior is alone at the holidays.
If you’d like to support our efforts, please make a contribution to the No Senior Alone campaign. Thanks to the generosity of the Sahm Family Foundation, all gifts will be matched!
