Feeding Our Elders: A Key Focus During National Senior Independence Month

National Senior Independence Month in February focuses on supporting and feeding our elders.

Every month brings a new opportunity to focus on important causes and groups within our community. This February, as we observe National Senior Independence Month, it’s time to turn our attention to the challenges and triumphs of our senior citizens, including the importance of nourishing our seniors. 

Numerous agencies that are supported by the Holiday Fund are making commendable strides in this domain.
