Brown Bag for Seniors
Loneliness and Hunger affects the quality of life for our senior citizens!
Our Brown Bag Program helps the most vulnerable seniors in our society – those with low incomes, homebound, disabled that live alone. TVW delivers 60 to 80 pounds of food and personal items to these seniors on the third week of every month, so that they will have enough food until to last they receive their next Social Security checks.
For seniors who live alone and are home-bound, having a pet can reduce loneliness, depression and stress and even lower blood pressure. But, for low income seniors, the problem is feeding them. “Animeals” is a pet food for cats and dogs which is provided to the participants of the Brown Bag Program, so that the seniors do not have to share their own food with their furry friends.
Please help us continue to bring food to the low-income, homebound and disabled elderly. We are in need of non-perishable food like, low sugar cereals, low sodium soups, vegetables, canned meats and pet food. Also, we can always use volunteers who are willing to deliver food to the Brown Bag recipients once a month.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
