Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Fountain Hills

Total Budget: $7,500

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Activity Type: Community Development: Volunteer Services

Summary: Volunteers for Seniors focus is on three programs: Gift a Lift, Adopt-a-Senior & Home Delivered Meals


Fountain Hills has a high percentage of retired seniors, many of them living on their own, in needing of help to continue to live independently. Target population of this project is senior residents in need of temporary or long-term assistance w/ daily nutrition, rides to medical appointments, assistance w/ small projects, wellness checks, and companionship that can help promote mental health and overall well being. The grant request partially funds program costs that may include materials/supplies and needed background checks to ensure the safety and security of the residents. Some of our Peaks Rotary members participate as volunteers in the programs. Most all of our Club members have worked as volunteers to staff our golf fundraiser, to sell beer, pretzels, sodas, & water at the Octoberfest and as participants for the Reverse Raffle. Please note that this is our second priority for a District Grant.

Thanks so much for submitting this District Grant application. Unfortunately, available DDF is insufficient to fund any club's second request this year. We hope this project can go forward with other funding.
