On September 16, 2016 the Board of Directors of the Lincoln Hills Foundation hosted its first annual Grant Recipients and Community Partners Luncheon and Meeting at Kilaga Springs Lodge. Over its 16 year history the Lincoln Hills Foundation has provided over $391,000 for senior related programs.
This event honored the work of 11 organizations that have received grants from the Lincoln Hills Foundation. Combined, their work has furthered the Foundation’s mission to promote and fund solutions and programs that enhance the quality of life for senior residents of the Lincoln Community.
The organizations and groups honored were: Neighborhood Watch, The Salt Mine, Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center, Seniors First, the Multiple Sclerosis Support Group, the Alzheimers/Dementia Caregiver’s Support Group, AARP Foundation Tax Aide Support Program, Friends of the Lincoln Library, the Bereavement Group, Bosom Buddies, and the St.Vincent de Paul Society.
Over lunch, informally, and during a more formal program, attendees shared important information about the services provided and the needs they see in our community.
The breadth and importance of the services highlighted was truly impressive. Those services include: food and essential adult products distribution to seniors; home delivered meals and meals provided at a senior respite and recreation program; caregiver support respite assistance; large print books at the Lincoln Library; tax preparation assistance; a microchip reader for the Lost Pet Alert Program; assistance for unexpected medical costs; support and education for breast cancer survivors, for people in bereavement, for individuals dealing with Multiple Sclerosis and for caregivers of Alzheimer’s/Dementia patients.
The Lincoln community is fortunate indeed to have the benefits of the services provided by these wonderful community organizations and groups.
