Think about seven people who you know over the age of 65. They could be your mother, grandfather, elderly neighbor, or someone you simply see walking down the street. Did you know that at least one of them is suffering from under- or malnutrition?
Because America is aging, and the number of elderly adults will double in the next 30 years, this silent epidemic needs to be stopped NOW.
ProHealth teamed up with Comfort Keepers and their “Stop Senior Hunger” campaign to help make a difference in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. We collected canned goods and non-perishable items throughout the month of September, held a bake sale that raised over $130, and set up a donation box in our lobby.
As the holidays are fast approaching, think about what you or your business can do to “Help Stop Senior Hunger.”
