July, 2013 :: Senior Source Outreach

Senior Source Outreach

For this month’s community service a number of us visited The Renaissance at Kessler Park, a local retirement community. We put on a sock hop, ice cream and bingo social for the residents as part of an outreach program created by The Senior Source.

We had a great time visiting with the residents, and by all accounts they enjoyed the visit as much as we did! Thanks to everyone who participated in brining a little joy to the daily routine of some of our lovely DFW seniors!

June, 2013 :: Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels

We raised $301 yesterday by brown bagging lunch and donating our dining-out money to Meals on Wheels!

The Visiting Nurse Association’s Meals on Wheels program provides a nutritious, freshly prepared, hot meal to Dallas County residents who are unable to provide or prepare their own meals due to illness, advanced age, or disability. These meals are prepared in VNA’s Beatrice M. Haggerty Kitchen and nearly 4,000 volunteers then deliver the meals to the homes of Meals on Wheels clients, along with kind words and a caring spirit. Over one million meals every year are delivered to seniors who are homebound or dining at senior centers in Dallas County.
