Thanks to your generosity and compassion, together we were able to help over 6,000 seniors across San Diego County from San Ysidro up to Oceanside and out to Ramona and Borrego. Thanks to you, they all had a place to celebrate and new friends to connect with during the holidays.
With close to $100,000 in grants from your generous donations and a matching grant from the Sahm Family Foundation, we were able to support over 100-holiday events and local senior centers, veteran halls, and community spaces.
Seeing the joy and community you helped create for older adults facing loneliness and isolation was incredibly heartwarming. The holiday season can be especially difficult for the estimated 130,000 senior orphans in San Diego County who have no family to spend it with. But your acts of kindness ensured they still had cheer, meals and human connection during this time.
As we reflect back on 2023, know that none of this would have been possible without each and every one of you. Your donations, your time volunteering, your partnerships, and your enthusiasm for supporting seniors made and continue to make all the difference.
We wanted to share with you one of the many videos and photos we received from across the County showcasing your donation in action! We dare you not to have a smile on your face the rest of 2023 after watching this holiday happiness!
