Senior Care Kits Volunteer Sign Up

Take time to give back on Giving Tuesday! 

Through a partnership with Honor Credit Union, Whirlpool Corporation and the Spectrum Health Lakeland Foundation, BCF volunteers will pack close to 800 kits that include basic care items like toothpaste and lotion, but also some safety things like flashlights, a first aid kit, nightlights, hand sanitizer and non-slip socks. We also add some fun things like puzzle books and candy. We're following the same format as last year — we'll send home kits for families to assemble, wrap and return to the Berrien Community Foundation.

Pick up: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 30
Drop Off: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. By Monday, Dec. 6

 
Care kits will be delivered by Area Agency on Aging and Meals on Wheels in December.

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.a senior smiles as she opens her senior care kit.
  • Every day, seniors are forced to choose between medicine, food or basic care items.
