The mission of Open Arms 101 is to provide outreach, support, and education to promote the well-being, healthy aging, and independence of older adults while strengthening their dignity and self-respect, and encouraging their contribution and participation in community life.
Our programs include:
Care Package Giveaway Program - supplying needed items to seniors that include deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, fleece blankets, nonslip socks, diabetic socks, Vaseline, lotion, Word Search Large Print puzzle books, and much more.
Silver Plate Senior Food Distribution Program - delivering food to seniors who are unable to purchase food because they cannot shop for themselves or they are unable to purchase food due to limited or restricted finances.
Transportation/Delivery Service - we transport seniors to the store, for medical appointments, and we will shop for seniors when they are unable to.
First Time Again Day Trips - to sporting events, museums, the zoo, the movies, and more.
As our partnerships increase with senior buildings and other senior facilities, we are in need of one to two vehicles that can transport multiple #advancefolk for outings, shopping, and delivering food to those who are in need. We also provide services to the homeless #advancefolk so we need large enough vehicles to deliver food, toiletries, and clothing to those #advancefolk in need.
