Senior Citizen Spring Fling

Official Dosomething.org Project

The Problem

 Because many times senior citizens are the lost link in our community chain, my sister and I have been trying to implement projects that are beneficial to the seniors in our church community. In the past I have hosted a emergency prepareness workshop for the seniors. This was very helpful because South Carolina coast is a hurricane prone area. The seniors was provided with emergency prepareness kits which they truly appreciated and found very helpful.  Just recently my sister along with a group of youth from our church sponsored a Valentine Sweetheart lunch for the seniors of the community. The senior was entertained and enjoyed a great lunch and received toiletry items as gift and prizes. Again the senior felt that their present in the community was appreciated. No as we move into the warmer season, we are planning a Senior Spring FlingAt this event, we will have members of the local health department come and speak with the seniors. We will serve lunch and offer gift card for the local pharmacy to help with medication purchase. We will also use this as a story telling time for the seniors because there is such a large generation gap and youth need to realize what roles their seniors have played to shape them into the leaders of today and tomorrow.
