Each month, many older adults in northeast Indiana must decide between purchasing food, filling prescriptions, or paying utilities or rent. Their limited income or retirement savings do not cover all their necessary living expenses. SeniorPak eases the decision for area senior citizens because they know they can count on SeniorPak and its 20+ pound bag of groceries every two weeks to supplement their food budget. SeniorPak ensures that homebound older adults over 60 years of age living on limited incomes have help with their food needs.
Volunteers are the key ingredient to our SeniorPak program's success. Some sort and stock food, some bag the groceries, some deliver them to SeniorPak clients using their own vehicles and gasoline and some do all three. Families, retirees, church groups, and students all deliver to SeniorPak recipients. Their dedication to helping these seniors and the companionship they provide is priceless.
