Dear Friends of ISC,
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Intercultural Senior Center has decided not to hold our annual fundraiser in August. Instead, we invite you to join the Benefit to Alleviate Senior Hunger, or BASH 2020, co-chaired by Kirk and Teresa Kellner. This giving campaign will raise much-needed funds to meet the food needs of vulnerable, isolated older adults.
ISC responded to senior hunger during this public health crisis by rapidly expanding food pantry services for adults ages 50 and older. Our pantry has several unique features—phone intake with culturally competent, bilingual social workers, options for delivery or pick-up, food selections that meet the needs and preferences of older adults from around the world. With seniors self-isolating for their own protection and with their usual support networks stretched thin, ISC has received more referrals and first-time callers than ever before.
Your support of BASH 2020 helps seniors not just in this time of emergency response but also throughout the year. Food insecurity among older adults has been increasing, and when the pandemic is over, senior hunger will remain. With your contribution, ISC’s new clients will receive full food insecurity assessments, assistance applying for benefits, and extra supports such as cooking classes and health education. When seniors aren’t worried about affording food, they are physically and mentally healthier and can share their talents and wisdom with others.
Thank you so much for joining ISC to alleviate senior hunger in our community. Your care and generosity for seniors make a real difference.
