We received a very nice update on last years Act of Caring - East Side Elders in Minneapolis. Janet Golden, Executive Director of East Side Elders wrote,

"I wanted to give you an update on what the Act of Caring support has meant to East Side Elders and our clients.

-We have provided groceries to 90 seniors who are struggling to eat well and stay healthy
-Provided grocery gift cards and gas cards to seniors so they may remain mobile and socially connected
-We have paid $500 in deductibles for seniors so they may get to see their physician or pay for medications
-We purchased winter coats and hats for seniors 
-Gave goodie bags of soap, shampoo etc to attendees at the Elder Cafe
-Provided 15 free meals to seniors at the Elder Cafe
-Distributed blankets to seniors at two senior centers

When we announced the Act of Caring and the generosity of the attendees, it triggered a flurry of giving from a variety of sources previously unaffiliated with the agency! We will be able to continue to provide assistance to a lot of people!"

It feels great to make a difference. Consider supporting this years Act of Caring - Beverly's Birthdays. You can learn more at https://www.acced-i.org/page/39thAC_AoC
