In the news

Caring for our Elderly

The Lucky One..

Imagine, you are all alone and scared. The only connection with the outside world is the daily news. That’s even more scary. You visit with family and friends on Facetime. That is, when you can get it to work. You are 93 years old, residing in an independent facility and your meals are being left on a chair outside your door to support “social distancing.”

In your entire lifetime, this is the first time you’ve experienced anything like this. You remember World War II, but you were just a young spirited teenager so you had little knowledge of what was really going on. All you knew is that the local roller skating rink was waiting for you and the young soldiers looked so handsome.

You are luckier than some and you know it.

Those Not So Lucky…

There are hundreds of seniors and elderly people locked down in their homes with little food and no outside contact. They wait for a good samaritan to bring them a meal from the local food pantry. They depend on that food to stay healthy.

One local agency in Beaufort is supplying meals daily to 56 seniors near them and conducting a wellness check. The agency volunteers receive the frozen meals once a week and deliver them daily. Won’t you help us, help them feed their older neighbors? Make a donation to Second Helpings of $56 or $112 and we will know where you want us to spend your gift. It will support the effort to feed our elderly neighbors. Visit today.
