Eastside Friends of Seniors invites you to be a valued sponsor of our Fall Fundraiser. Your sponsorship will help local seniors and will provide you a unique opportunity to promote your business to a special audience.
Eastside Friends of Seniors has been serving seniors in our community since 1998. Each year we serve more than 300 clients, with our volunteers providing more than 4000 hours of service and driving our clients more than 50,000 miles! This year COVID19 changed our world. So, we pivoted. We checked in with our current clients and former clients and determined what they needed to remain “safe at home.” As a result, we have taken our philosophy of “neighbor helping neighbor” to the next level. New requests for our services continue to pour in — so we can’t stop now!
Here are some ways our volunteers have continued to help our clients during these difficult times:
Access to food. Instead of taking our clients shopping, our volunteers shop for them and do porch deliveries. We also help them access food from the food bank.
Transportation to medical appointments. Some appointments, such as chemotherapy or eye treatments that are critical to preserving sight, just can’t wait.
Human connection. When in-person visits were no longer allowed, we started a “Telephone Buddy” program so that our clients, many whom live alone, have someone to visit with and know they are not forgotten.
Sponsoring this year’s Enriching Lives virtual event gives you a platform to highlight your business and share your commitment to caring for Seniors in need. Your support will continue to be highlighted on our website, social media, and e-newsletter over the next six months.
Please note: In-Kind gifts valued at $1,000+ will be recognized commensurate with Silver/Gold/Platinum benefits. Examples of opportunities for in-kind sponsorship include underwriting of printing, video production, professional photography, and more!
