3 ways to provide healthy food to seniors in Chicago

You can be a hero to Charlotte by helping to put warm food on her table all year. 

Charlotte found a new home at Pat Crowley House two years ago when she was living alone and showing signs of health deterioration.

Nice_day_for_a_walk_-_Copy.jpgCharlotte laughingly confessed that she was “never much of a cook” and that when she lived on her own she was constantly eating fast food or processed foods.

Her wellbeing and pocket book took a toll.

Now that she lives at Pat Crowley House, she has daily home cooked meals prepared for her in a family like setting.

As a result, Charlotte now eats healthier food and lives a more active lifestyle.

Through our partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, you can provide nutritious, tasty meals to seniors like Charlotte who live at Good Life Senior Residences at Pat Crowley and Nathalie Salmon Houses.

This year, we are making it even easier for you to help Charlotte access healthy food in her home. 

Will you help us raise $3,000 to provide food for Good Life Senior Residences for a full year?

For only $8.50 per day, you can help feed 20 seniors.

There are three ways to provide healthy food to seniors in Chicago:

  1. Participate in the Hunger Walk

Are you walking or raising money for the Hunger Walk this year? If so, remember to walk for H.O.M.E. by including our agency code when you sign up: A00841. We will receive $12 of credit to purchase food from the Depository for every walker who uses our team code.

  1. Donate to H.O.M.E.’s account at the Greater Chicago Food Depository

Any donation that you make to the Depository can be allocated to H.O.M.E.’s account to feed seniors who live at Good Life Senior Residences. All you have to do is include our agency code A00841 on your check or online donation.

  1. Share!

Share this blog post or send an email to your friends, family, and co-workers. Let them know why you support H.O.M.E. and our partnership with the Depository, and how they can help by donating here. You can also share our posts on Facebook and Twitter!

Every dollar donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository using Agency Code A00841 will go directly to H.O.M.E.’s account and help Charlotte have healthy meals on her table every day.
