Seniors at Mid-City are clients like Timofey. Without a regular source of nutritious food, his energy is low and he’s exhausted with a terrible headache. If he doesn’t get good food soon, his symptoms will get worse.
Knowing where he can get help with food means so much to Timofey. Going hungry can compromise his immune system and elevate his risk of heart attack, asthma and congestive heart failure. Worrying about where his next meal will come from can bring on anxiety and put him at increased risk of depression. Your donation to Second Harvest will provide nutritious ingredients for breakfasts, lunches and dinners for older adults living on fixed incomes.
The average income for a senior at Mid-City is $687 a month. Choices between housing, medicine and food are nearly impossible. You can protect seniors in your neighborhood from having to make these compromises. The Dawley Family will match the first $15,000 donated this month. Give today and your support will go twice as far.
Thanks to their thoughtful matching gift, every $1 you donate in February will be doubled and can provide 10 meals for hungry seniors in our communities.
