Did you know that 1 in 12 seniors in Kansas City didn’t have enough food to live healthy lives BEFORE Covid-19?
Kansas City’s parents and grandparents, neighbors, aunts and uncles who were already isolated are now at risk of starving without the daily meals that organizations like Shepherd’s Center KC delivers through selfless volunteers.
Shepherd’s Center KC is still delivering hot nutritious meals, fresh fruits and vegetables form Healthy Harvest at Truman Medical Center, and toilet paper and incontinence supplies directly to homebound seniors in their homes.
The meals delivered 5 days a week are sometimes the only meals that clients receive in a day. Shepherd’s Center volunteers form deep bonds with their senior clients, and are often the only human contact that they receive. It is now even more important for these volunteers to check on their seniors routinely!
Shepherd’s Center is in need of volunteers who are willing to deliver meals during this demanding time.To learn more, contact Bobi Hallak, Volunteer Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shepherd’s Center is also in need of donations. Due to Covid-19, the funds from donors that Shepherd’s Center depend on are severely diminished from even a month ago, leaving Shepherd’s Center and other similar organizations that provide essential services to the most vulnerable populations in Kansas City scrambling to continue to make the difference that only those on the front lines can make.
Help feed Kansas City’s most vulnerable seniors for a day, a week, or a month. $100 helps Shepherd’s Center feed 10 vulnerable seniors, and delivers toilet paper and adult incontinence supplies for 1 day. $10 supports one senior for a day. Please consider making an emergency donation.
