To encourage and equip families, churches, and communities to CARE for the social, spiritual, and significance needs of widows, the elderly, and their caregivers through:

Community Projects

Small group Christmas caroling…

 

  • Small Group: Christmas caroling, yard cleanup, snow removal
  • High School: Project Honor – NHS connects  H.S. students with nearby homebound seniors
  • Sports Teams: Game Day Visit –  sports team (wearing jerseys) visits a senior facility near their school on game day, bearing carnations, smiles, and honor
  • College: Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program partner

Business Beyond the Book: Doctors, pharmacists, and other businesses with an older adult clientele show they care about their seniors by partnering with KSC to deliver gifts on senior birthdays and/or various holidays such as Veteran’s Day, May Day, Valentine’s Day…

Neighborhood Involvement – a We Care Community

  • Neighbors look for opportunities to CARE for their older adult neighbors
  • Connection Camps providing interaction of children with seniors in Assisted Living

Church Involvement

  • Senior Care Outreach partnership to their Homebound members
  • Bible studies in assisted living facilities
  • VBS w/emphasis on Aging Awareness and senior participation

Thank you for the thoughtful gift of Peppernuts. Truly appreciated knowing the reasoning behind the gift. It was so gracious of Mary F. to bring it by; with a delicious lunch.

Love,

Delbert & Joy
