As a community leader and advocate, the Alliance on Aging provides services and resources that address the challenges and opportunities of aging.
I REMEMBER PAPA!
Father’s Day, June 19
This Father’s Day, help us pay tribute to all the special “papas” living in long-term care facilities in Monterey County so that they are not forgotten!
Volunteers from Alliance on Aging will deliver baseball caps, greeting cards and hugs to senior men in nursing homes.
Our goal is to distribute 1,000 baseball caps to these special “papas” — fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and friends — who have contributed so much throughout their working lives to build the community we enjoy together.
Help make a difference in the lives of local seniors. Your donation enables the OMBUDSMAN program to enrich these men’s lives as well as provide advocacy services to all seniors residing in long-term care facilities.
