Teens in the New Beginnings program through the SouthWest Metro Educational Cooperative held a “Cupcakes and Cocoa” fundraiser.

This is the world experienced by a growing number of Minnesota seniors.
Why does it matter? Because isolated seniors suffer more rapid physical decline. More serious health consequences. An earlier death.
Is this how we want our elderly and vulnerable friends, neighbors and family members to live out their lives? Of course not and there’s a simple way to help.
Gifts for Seniors provides donated gifts and life-affirming personal contact during the winter holidays to isolated seniors in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. With the critical support of volunteers, donors and community partners - people like you - we can stop the spiral into loneliness, isolation and early death.
There is no other program in the Twin Cities area that has such a transformative impact on our forgotten seniors. No one should live their last years without love and connection to their community. Every single gift has the potential to change a life.
Please, reach out now to make that connection with lost and lonely seniors. You can help.
