Please consider choosing Senior Services of Alexandria during the “Share the Love” Campaign to support your local Meals on Wheels program and other programs benefiting older adults in Alexandria. Community support allows us to impact the lives of our city’s most vulnerable older adults through daily Meals on Wheels deliveries, grocery shopping and free pet food delivery, friendly visits to isolated seniors, and education and outreach for English and Spanish-speakers. This year, SSA’s Meals on Wheels Program delivered approximately 50,000 meals to over 160 homebound older adults; 95 clients received bi-weekly grocery deliveries; 30 seniors were able to receive free pet food; and over 50 isolated seniors were matched with friendly visitors.
“We thank Beyer Subaru of Alexandria for designating SSA as its hometown charity for this year’s campaign,” said Mary Lee Anderson, Executive Director of Senior Services of Alexandria. “The Share the Love Campaign is an opportunity to bring awareness during the holiday season of the hardships that many older adults face in receiving proper nutrition and combatting social isolation.”
As a part of the "Share the Love” campaign, Subaru has also teamed up with SSA for a glove and mitten drive to benefit SSA’s Meals on Wheels and other clients. If you are interested in donating new adult-sized gloves or mittens, you can drop off your donation at SSA’s Office at 206 N. Washington Street, Suite 301 through December 16.For more information about “Share the Love,” go to www.subaru.com/share-the-love.
