The Senior Fund is a partnership between the Area Agency on Aging, the El Paso Times and United Way of El Paso County to help local seniors in need.
All donations made to the Senior Fund will go towards covering the cost of assistance that cannot be covered by the Area Agency on Aging or any other social service organizations. Items purchased can include:
· Dental Services (Dentures, Dental procedures)
· Hearing Aids
· Medical Equipment (Walkers, Wheelchairs, Canes)
· Home Modifications (Shower Conversions, Door Widening, Ramps, etc.)
· Other Requests as Needed
In 2020 The Senior Fund was able to allocate over $31,000 to pay for needed services for Area Agency on Aging clients in need, including two (2) dental procedures, four (4) grab bar home installations, three (3) home modification projects, and five (5) hearing aid fittings. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Senior Fund also began creating “senior care kits” for those 65+ who were unable to leave their homes. The senior care kits included toilet paper, hand soap, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, masks and hand sanitizer, and were delivered directly to senior citizens front door step. Over 1,550 senior care kits were delivered between April 1 – November 10, 2020.
Senior Fund donations can be made year-round. We appreciate your support in helping to meet the needs of our community!
