Giving Tuesday

 

November 28 is Giving Tuesday and BCF is asking you to give some time to help us provide care kits to low income senior citizens in Berrien County.

Through a partnership with Honor Credit Union Foundation, BCF and its volunteers will package 500 kits including items such as shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, etc. to deliver to our seniors in need. 
 
What We Know
  • 1 in 10 Berrien County senior citizens is living below the poverty level. 
  • When out of pocket medical costs are factored in, 1 in 7 are in poverty
  • Every day seniors are forced to choose between medicine and food, or medicine and basic care items.
