Seniors Bob and Vickie worked hard in their early years, even paying off their house. But when Bob grew ill, 18 months of care meant growing debt.
“He passed away in February,” an emotional Vickie shared. “And financially, his medical bills wiped out anything extra we had.”
Fortunately, for seniors like Vickie, your support ensures programs like our food shelf, Mobile Food Pantry and Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS) are available to seniors in times of unexpected crisis.
“I’ve always been a frugal shopper,” she shared. “I keep a garden, search for markdowns and accept venison from neighbors. It’s been a humbling experience but the pantry has been a big help.”
