'A tree's beauty lies in its branches, but its strength lies in its roots.' - Matshona Dhliwayo
Since 1978 Community Partnership on Aging has been rooted in the community. Our member cities, our staff, sponsors and business partners, families, participants and donors, are the roots that make us the agency we are for serving the older adults of Highland Heights, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Richmond Heights and South Euclid.As an essential service we have worked hard to continue to meet the needs of local older adults despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Below, we took a moment to put together some stats about the incredible work we've been doing since March (estimated through December):
➜ Approximately 40,000 meals and meal kits served (that's an increase of at least 400% over 2019!);
➜ Over 78,000 lbs of produce and shelf stable foods distributed;
➜ Approximately 1600 meals delivered to isolated seniors living alone in their homes;
➜ 3,750 activity kits printed and distributed;
➜ More than 1,000 wellness check phone calls made.
2020 has been a rough year for us all. If you have the means, please consider making a donation to Community Partnership on Aging (as little as $50 goes a long way!). All donations are 100% tax deductible.
