November 27th is GIVING TUESDAY and Berrien Community Foundation is asking you to give some time to
help us provide care kits to low income senior citizens across Berrien County.
Through a partnership with Honor Credit Union Foundation and Heart of Cook, along with donations from Bradford Insurance Agency and our Donor Advised Fund partners,
BCF and its volunteers will package 750 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.
