As part of their annual Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week (Nov. 6 – 14), we are conducting our annual Senior Harvest Baskets program to help ease the financial burden of local low-income seniors and make their holidays a little brighter, and you can help!
Bring your donations of staple food items and/or personal care products to TrueNorth, Monday – Friday, 8 AM – 5 PM, by Friday, October 30. Packing of donations will begin during the Tent City Challenge overnight lock-in, Nov. 6 – 7 as the local middle and high school students in attendance will take part in a service project to assist this greatly needed program. Volunteers from Nestle Gerber will deliver the boxes to senior’s homes on Friday, Nov. 13th. These boxes will help local low-income seniors stretch their limited finances a little further during an especially busy, expensive, and often lonely time of the year for them. If you would like to help, but don’t have time to shop for items, you may make a cash donation to TrueNorth for this program. Give securely online at www.truenorthservices.org, or send a check, made payable to TrueNorth, with “Senior Harvest Baskets” on the memo line to PO Box 149, Fremont, MI, 49412.
Applications for the Senior Harvest Basket program are available at TrueNorth, 6308 S. Warner Ave., Fremont, or online at the website above, and are due in by Tuesday, Oct. 29. Please contact Brad Hastings at TrueNorth with any questions at (231) 924-0641, ext. 124 or firstname.lastname@example.org, because no senior should go hungry over the holidays.
