2023 Spring Forward Donation drive to benefit 200 to 250 senior adults in need.
Pantry staples / Paper goods / Laundry items / Personal hygiene products
It’s a warm and sunny Saturday here in Johnson City. The parks are filled with laughter and there are dozens of people picnicking and enjoying their day. Not amongst them are Janet and Michael. They will no longer be hungry and worried about where their next meal can come from. Michael and Janet are in their 70’s, living at the poverty level with few financial or social resources. They are lucky in that they have each other, many of the seniors we provide food boxes for live alone with few resources. There are hundreds of seniors who are food poor, often hungry, socially isolated and living a day by day existence.
The Johnson City Senior Foundations has been providing food boxes for needy seniors for over 10 years. Today, we’re asking for your help because hundreds of seniors in Washington, Carter, Sullivan and Unicoi counties are in need. It cost $75 to provide one of these adult Seniors with healthy food and personal hygiene items. Please consider being a Spring Forward event sponsor and sponsoring multiple Seniors.
