Our Stories

Senior citizen holding a wrapped gift.We are taking care of our senior citizens in Berrien County. Hundreds of volunteers, BCF staff and our donors combine to make Senior Care Kits for over 950 low-income, homebound seniors, letting them know they’re being thought of and cared for during the holiday season.

Senior Care Kits are wrapped packages full of basic necessities like shampoo, lotion and toothpaste – but also goodies like scarves, puzzle books and some candy. We partner with Meals on Wheels and Area Agency on Aging to identify clients and to deliver the packages.  

The love and care put into each Senior Care Kit is felt by seniors. This is what Cleo had to say when she received her gift:


“I feel real blessed to have friends like

you. I don’t know what I did to deserve

this. You all are so wonderful!”
