If it is possible for you to make all or part of the suggested donation of $4.00 – $7.00/hour for each service you receive, it will enable us to serve more seniors. If you cannot make a donation due to your financial situation, it is still our pleasure to help you with your basic needs. 

Donations can be made daily, weekly or monthly, whatever is most convenient for you. Our employees carry with them tamper proof donation envelopes in which you can place your contribution and receive a receipt as well. Upon request, we can also provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your convenience to return your donation. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of our need.
