COVID-19 Relief Funds: THANK YOU!
Our heartfelt thanks to the following foundations for their generosity in helping us continue our services to older adults with critically needed supplies and funding.
The Community Foundation of Monterey County ($10,000):
The i-Pads will ensure that older adults living in these facilities, who are isolated from their family and friends due to Shelter-in-Place, can communicate with their loved ones via the virtual platform. The i-Pads provide a gateway away from loneliness and enhance their mental well being.
HOSPICE FOUNDATION ($7,500):
In April, we received $7,500 in COVID-19 emergency funds from the Hospice Foundation to support our many programs for older adults. The funds enabled us to provide critical support services to seniors in need of transportation assistance, benefits checkup, counseling and others. Our programs managers were able to call and check on the welfare of each of their clients.
Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital (500 Masks):
During the early days of the COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place in March, critically needed disposable masks were nearly impossible to find. Through SVMHS ‘s generosity, we received 500 masks for distribution to older adults, especially those living in low-income neighborhoods, who are most vulnerable to the disease. The masks helps provide a layer of protection while these seniors are in the public shopping or picking up medicine.
