We are Smiles for Seniors Foundation; a Non Profit 501 c (3) organization serving our low income seniors in the Inland Empire and surrounding areas. We help over 350 seniors each year when everyday unexpected emergencies arise and do not fit in to our seniors budget, such as food, housing and utility payments, groceries, minor home and auto repair and help pay for prescriptions just to name a few.
The state budget being what it is; many assistance programs that rely on government funding are losing funding and we are gaining their overflow. Because we are self sufficient and rely solely on local business for funding, we usually have funds available for seniors when many other agencies do not. We get many of our referrals from local
Governmental and nongovernmental agencies such as, 211 United Way, Salvation Army, Office on Aging, local senior centers, law enforcement, hospitals, churches and many other agencies.
We realize that there will always be poverty among the senior population; however we intend to stop the downward spiral that tends to happen when you are on a very fixed income. Even a grocery bill that is a few dollars higher can start this effect, leaving them to choose between medication and food, which in turn leads to past due utility or rent payments leaving them homeless and hungry.. Many seniors are skimping on food and do not eat 3 meals a day, and some even have to split their medication in half or skip doses all together leading to poor health and even death. This does not have to happen…Our vision is a world where not one senior will go without the basic necessities needed to survive. With your donation and support, you can help to alleviate some of the pressures and fears that many seniors have of not having enough to survive.
We have 3 ways to give.
#1. Is our Senior Assistance Fund in which we help seniors financially every day.
#2 is our Newsletter: advertize your business in our publication which supports our seniors year round.
#3 is our upcoming event. (There’s always something fun going on.)
We realize that you get many requests for donations and hope that you will choose to support your local seniors by filling out the form below and mailing it along with your tax deductible contribution to the address above. Anything will help.
