FCS NEEDS YOUR HELP TO SERVE OUR SENIORS
Before COVID-19, we would have around 60-70 Seniors attending our Senior Lunch Program and Food Bank at the Filipino Community Center (FCC). The food bank had 6 volunteers eager to serve and have everything ready for them. We offered Zumba and other activities to work out their bodies and appetite while they waited. After a couple of hours socializing and having fun with friends, our Seniors would leave the FCC warm, full, and happy!
We understand how essential our services are to lives in our community. Currently, our Senior Lunch Program and Food Bank are serving almost 200 seniors a day on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. To keep them safe and healthy, we have asked our Seniors to stay at home and we, instead, deliver food to them. We have partnered with Public Transportation and have a few volunteers to help us deliver, but it is not enough.
As the requests for food continue to grow, we need more financial help as our grant funding is insufficient to meet the need. You can donate cash through https://donorbox.org/
