The Stamford Senior Center- keeping seniors safe and engaged throughout this pandemic and beyond.

2020 has been a very challenging year for all of us. However the pandemic has hit our older adult population especially hard. COVID forced us to suspend our onsite programs in an attempt to keep our seniors safe but we have not wavered in our mission to keep our older adults active, healthy and engaged . The Stamford Senior Center (SS) has become a "senior center without walls". Virtual classes through Zoom and Youtube, drive through lunches , weekly discussion groups are just some of the ways we are engaging our seniors during this time of prolonged isolation. In the words of one of our members, "These grab and go lunches help break up our day and are fun. Thanks to you for making us feel less invisible and alone. Your kindness always shows through." We have also been delivering freshly prepared meals to our frailer seniors since March to keep them nourished and safe at home and minimize their risk of contracting the virus. "I just cannot thank you enough for feeding us at this difficult time. Each container lasts me two meals, it's a huge portion and very delicious. Thank you so much." (from a senior who has been receiving home delivered meals). In the past six months, the SSC has provided over 5,000 meals and 1,200 bags of groceries to seniors along with over 600 meals at our drive through lunches.

Together we will get through this. COVID is no match for our resilient senior community! We thank you in advance for your support!
