This is the time of year that reminds us of what we are grateful for and inspires the spirit of giving to others. Bayview Hunters Point Multipurpose Senior Services is asking for your support to give back during the holiday season to those who have gone before us.
Bayview Hunters Point Multipurpose Senior Services has provided comprehensive services for over forty three years and currently serves over 2000 seniors and disabled adults per year in Bayview and Western Addition. Seniors and disabled persons count on us to have access to nutritious meals, social services, enrichment activities, money management and wellness programs. BHPMSS reaches seniors who are low income, homeless, ex-offenders, frail, disabled and generally in need of support. Many of our clients live on $800/ month and find there is little if anything left at the end of the month.
We are asking our friends, local businesses and supporters to remember our elders through giving donations during the holiday season. Your gift may be the only gift they receive, as many seniors are forgotten during the holidays and throughout the year. The act of caring goes way beyond the gift, it is the idea that someone thought of them.
Donations are used to purchase new gifts, (e.g. scarf, sweater, gift card, movie tickets etc) . Businesses may donate as a whole or individual staff/ volunteers can purchase items that will benefit a senior. Employee and civic groups can get together and purchase gifts as well. Something practical is what is usually most appreciated by the seniors. Our center directors can provide more specific information on the numbers of seniors at their site if needed . We will ensure these gifts get to seniors in the community and pick up items if needed during this holiday season. Our staff and volunteers would love to present to any group interested in participating.
Together we can make this a year to honor our elders.
