Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $2,500 to A Little Help program
Community-driven initiative supports seniors in area neighborhoods
SAN ANTONIO, TX (December 21, 2016) — The Security Service Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce a $2,500 donation to A Little Help, a Colorado service organization founded by a group of retirees who wanted to offer “a little help” to senior citizens in their neighborhoods.
“Our goal is to not only help seniors stay in their homes as long as possible, but to thrive there,” said Dr. Paul Leon Ramsey, executive director of A Little Help. “Our volunteer teams do it all to help their neighbors- driving to appointments and errands, raking leaves, washing windows, organizing, assisting with technology; a plethora of important chores that need to be done and that we’re happy to do. We appreciate Security Service supporting our efforts to grow our program and provide these important services to other seniors in need.”
Funds from the Security Service donation will provide additional equipment, supplies, and other needs in support of the organization’s Service Saturdays!, which take place at least 10 times a year.
“It is an amazing experience to witness neighbors helping neighbors. We know the majority of seniors, when given the option, prefer to stay in their own homes as they get older. Many, however, simply cannot manage the day to day chores that this requires,” said Rick Weber, senior vice president of member service – Mountain Region, for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “We’re delighted to support A Little Help in their caring efforts to lend a helping hand to our community’s elderly residents.”
Since 2011, more than 1,000 volunteers have assisted 450-plus older adults in and around the Denver area and in Chaffee and Jefferson Counties, and the North Folk Valley; helping with transportation, household chores, and repairs so seniors can remain in their homes and their communities.
