We are thrilled to be part of Long Beach Gives once again this year! On September 23, more than 200 nonprofit organizations will be rallying supporters from every corner of Long Beach to help local nonprofit organizations thrive.
This year, we are committed to raising $36,000 for our Senior Adult Meal Delivery Program. Through this program, we provide senior adults a healthy and delicious meal who are housebound due to COVID-19 at no cost.
Each month, we aim to provide 600 meals. With the help of the community, we could deliver 7,200 meals for one year! Thanks to The Grand of Long Beach for partnering with us by providing the lunches at $5 per meal to us.
This Is How We Come Together!
What’s the best part about being part of our community? It’s the fact that when anyone needs help, WE are here! JCC Staff, members, donors, volunteers, and community partners, rise to the occasion in a moment’s notice. We are so lucky to have every single one of you be part of this. This is what being part of a community is all about. Watch this video to see just how everything comes together to make our Senior Adult Meal Delivery Program possible.
You Donate, We'll Pack it Up and Deliver!
Each week our wonderful volunteers from the community deliver nutritious meals to our senior adults. Before COVID-19, our popular Senior Wednesday Lunches provided the opportunity for seniors in our community to eat a healthy, well-balanced meal, and a time to socialize and be part of a group. When COVID-19 hit, we had to close our doors and stop all programming, including our Senior Wednesday Lunch program. We felt it was important to keep this service going through the pandemic and decided to bring the meals to our senior adult community directly to their homes!
With your help, we can raise $36,000 to cover one year’s worth of meals for our senior adult community. Please donate any amount to help us get to $36,000 by 9.24.20!
Thank you for helping us stay connected with our senior adult community.
