Supplies for Seniors Drive a Success

Peggy McGee

The Women Of Quail Creek’s Community Outreach Committee sponsored a collection for 22 seniors (19 ladies and three men) who live in the subsidized rent units at Michelle Manor Apartments in Green Valley. For most, the only income they have is Social Security, so the group wanted to provide them with some necessities that they cannot get from the food bank. Sometimes non-food items like paper, cleaning, and grooming supplies cost more than food.

The group purchased large colorful cloth bags for each of the seniors, making sure they were not too heavy, because there are no elevators in the apartment complex.

On April 10, when members of the Community Outreach Committee delivered the gifts, they also added $5 to each of the attendees’ laundry cards. The Michelle Manor manager provided cookies to make the event a fun experience for the residents.

Thanks to all who supported this project.
