Help San Diego Seniors Recover from the Floods​

We’ve launched the San Diego Seniors Flood Recovery Fund: a beacon of hope for seniors battling the aftermath of the floods. Your donation will become a lifeline, ensuring no senior alone navigates this hardship.

While we understand the desire to help individuals directly, our goal is to maximize the impact of each donation. By donating to our San Diego Seniors Flood Recovery Fund, we will direct the monies to established non-profit organizations engaged in disaster response and relief; we leverage their expertise, infrastructure, and experience to efficiently distribute aid and resources to a wider range of people in need.

Help Us Send Seniors On Safari to the Safari Park

This February, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is offering free admission to seniors ages 65 and over. However, many seniors in our community do not have access to transportation to enjoy this special opportunity. That’s why we are reaching out for support to provide bus transportation and ensure these seniors can participate in Senior Day at the Safari Park.

Your gift will provide an exciting and educational outing for seniors who otherwise may not have this chance. With your help, we hope to bus over 500 seniors from local senior centers and other communities to the Safari Park later this month.
