Senior Citizens, Inc. (SCI), a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for area seniors, announced that its COVID-19 Relief Fund has received a $7,500 donation from Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. to provide meals and support for programs benefiting our community’s older adults.

“The sad truth is older adults in our community and across the nation regularly spend days, months, or even years home alone, unable to get to the grocery store or into their communities. They are disproportionately impacted especially now, both financially and emotionally,” said Patti Lyons, president and CEO of Senior Citizens, Inc. “We are truly grateful for Gulfstream’s generosity in light of the significant financial impact of COVID-19.”

While SCI team members are working remotely, they are still helping older adults and their families find critical resources. At this time, they continue to serve Meals on Wheels and In-Home Services clients. Additionally, SCI is offering online programming in mental and physical fitness for its Neighborhood Centers and Adult Day Health Centers, and has shifted the programming for its lifelong learning program, The Learning Center, from in-person lectures to virtual ones.
