Foundation Cancels Annual Golf Tournament but seeks donations for Holiday Gift Cards for Hungry Seniors in Riverside County
Even though the Foundation on Aging has found it necessary to
cancel the October Charity Golf Tournament, we remain committed
to the Holiday Gift Card initiative that helps provide seniors a
nutritious holiday meal. The proceeds from previous tournaments
benefitted the senior population in Riverside County. The Foundation
continues to seek donations to ensure that we are able to sustain
this vitally important initiative.
If our fundraising efforts are successful the Foundation hopes to
donate funds to each of the 42 senior centers throughout the county
that must be used to feed seniors in the form of a gift card to be
used by needy seniors to purchase food for their holiday table.
The Foundation’s efforts are especially important this holiday season. A survey conducted
in Eastern Riverside County reports that more than 7,000 seniors in that part of the county
alone go without food daily. Throughout the county the numbers of hungry seniors are
expected to increase with the current financial crisis. Although hunger is a daily problem
for many seniors, the holidays are a time of food and celebration. We hope to highlight the
larger issue while providing some holiday joy to our seniors.
You can help the Foundation achieve its goal of making sure all 42 senior centers in
Riverside County receive funds for the sole purpose of providing gift cards to needy seniors
this holiday season by sending your tax deductible donation to Foundation on Aging, 6296
River Crest Drive, Riverside, CA 92507, Attention Gloria Sanchez. Make the decision to be
part of this holiday program and be part of “helping feed seniors this holiday season.”
We greatly appreciate your past participation, cooperation and support in making the
Foundation on Aging Charity Golf Tournament a success and look forward to a great season
