Take time to give back on Giving Tuesday!
Through a partnership with the Frederick S. Upton Foundation, the Heart of Cook, and Honor Credit Union BCF volunteers will pack over 1,000 kits that include shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, and other items for seniors in need. It will be a bit different this year as we send home kits for families to assemble, wrap and return to the Berrien Community Foundation.
Care kits will be delivered by Area Agency on Aging and Meals on Wheels.
What We Know:
- 1 in 10 Berrien County seniors are living below the poverty level.
- When out-of-pocket medical costs are factored in, 1 in 7 are below the poverty level.
- Every day, seniors are forced to choose between medicine, food, or basic care items.
How You Can Help:
Due to overwhelming response, volunteer registration is now closed. Thank you for your interest in helping out with Giving Tuesday!
Bring a Toy!
