Note From Activities:
May is Older Americans Month! We hope you will join us in sharing your story about how you personally have been connected via Shelby Senior Services. Throughout this pandemic we have been providing phone calls to our seniors to check-in on them, sent cards, and even paid a few personal visits here or there. Our food pantry has provided canned goods and much needed toilet paper to seniors in need. We have provided and continue to provide in-person activities (when were able to) and provided virtual activities throughout the entire pandemic. Our staff have called and assisted with scheduling of COVID vaccines. We have tried to foster strength and connectedness within our community. We have all had to ban together and have adapted to daily changes.
I sincerely want to take time to applaud all of those who have done their part and received their vaccines. Keeping Shelby County safe has been a collective effort on everyone’s part. Your help in doing so has not gone unnoticed.
We would love to hear stories about how you have been connected with services within our community, keeping in touch with your friends and family, or overcoming an obstacle during this time. Your stories are all examples of we have worked together to strengthen our community. I would love to share your stories via our FB page. Please call me at (317) 398-0127 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can share the good news!!!
We remain stronger together and we are moving ever forward!
Sunny days are here again,
