2018 was another successful year for the Lincoln Hills Foundation in making the lives of seniors in Lincoln a better experience – or at least more manageable.
For example, we provide the funds needed for room rental and administrative costs for the Multiple Sclerosis group and the Bosom Buddies group of breast cancer patients and survivors for their meetings and events. We also support Neighborhood Watch for its administrative needs.
On a larger scale, the Foundation provides grants to Seniors First for the MyMeals program which delivers meals for the new Lincoln Senior Center as well as individual deliveries for those who cannot shop or cook for themselves. Food insecurity in Placer County impacts about 30% of Seniors. Through Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center, caregivers area provided with “respite” (time off) from their 24-hour responsibilities to keep personal medical appointments, get some exercise, or meet other personal needs. We also provide funds for the Salt Mine for senior needs – including food – for items such as Depends and nutritional drinks.
Lincoln Hills is a microcosm of the society surrounding us. We have residents who are secure financially and physically, and we also have residents who do not enjoy that status. As we hopefully continue to age, the challenges of ageing become more acute. Certainly every one of us is experiencing the onslaught of age (diminished eyesight, hearing, mobility, etc.). Multiply your circumstance by the residents who live here, and you can visualize the concern.
Some 17 years ago the Del Webb company provided seed money to legally establish the Lincoln Hills Foundation as an organization that could address these ageing issues. The Community Association is not in that business. It does a marvelous job of providing us with the facilities and amenities that make this community so special, but other needs outside the purpose and ability of the SCLHCA also need to be addressed, and that is the mission of the Lincoln Hills Foundation.
We hope that you will continue to support the LHF, because even you may have a future need for what we provide. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity organization, staffed entirely by volunteers, and 100% of all donations go directly to programs and services for seniors in Lincoln.
Thank you for your past and future support.
