GIFT CARDS TO HELP FEED SENIORS

The Foundation on Aging is a nonprofit foundation that works to raise awareness of senior needs and to raise funds to help fill in the gaps created by the decreasing public funding for services to seniors due to the State and County’s distressed economy.

So many seniors need help with nutrition, transportation, and health care services and this foundation provides a vehicle to respond to the diverse needs of older adults.

The Riverside County Foundation on Aging will be hosting its Annual Charitable Golf Tournament on Friday, October 6, 2017 at the Menifee Lakes Golf Course, 29875 Menifee Lakes Drive in Menifee.

Public funding for services to seniors is shrinking as a direct result of a distressed economy in our state and county. An increasing number of seniors need help with nutrition, transportation and health services. The Foundation is working to strengthen, expand and support senior programs in Riverside County and looks to the Golf Tournament to raise awareness of issues facing seniors as well as to raise needed funding to provide for necessary support for seniors in greatest need.

The Foundation is incorporated as a 501(c) (3) and is completely funded through local donations. By hosting the Annual Golf Tournament, the Foundation hopes to offer a day of fun and entertainment for golfers and at the same time provides more security for our seniors who are in crisis. The Foundation will become more and more critical in the future as the numbers of seniors swell and their needs increase with ever shrinking resources to respond.

Gloria J. Sanchez
President
