In 2020, as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Lance's Gift shifted from providing Christmas gifts for the elderly to providing COVID-19 Safety Kits. We provided over 250 COVID-19 Safety Kits to two area senior citizen communities.
We provided disposable masks, reusable masks, plastic gloves, a no-touch tool, and hand sanitizer in a Lance's Gift carrying case.
According to the National Council on Aging, Over 25 million Americans aged 60+ are economically insecure—living at or below 250% of the federal poverty level (FPL) ($29,425 per year for a single person). These older adults struggle with rising housing and health care bills, inadequate nutrition, lack of access to transportation, diminished savings, and job loss. For older adults who are above the poverty level, one major adverse life event can change today’s realities into tomorrow’s troubles.
Lance's Gift selected the St. Augustine's, Little Sisters of the Poor Senior Citizens Home for 2019. We delivered personal care items and gifts to the residents of this facility, located in Indianapolis, IN. NOTE: No Pictures were posted due to privacy restrictions at the facility.
