Summer is over and Fall Fund-raising Season is upon us and it could not happen at a more needed time.  As most of you know our funding from our St. Louis Area Agency on Aging (S.L.A.A.A.) is reduced again this year, which over the last five years we have lost $125,000 in those grants.  This has made our fund raiser’s, grant writing, and client contributions  efforts even more crucial.  Also with the added vehicle repairs that were needed this last month totaling over $4,000 which were not planned but had to be done.

So having said all of that we are asking for your support of our upcoming fund raising endeavors.  Whatever assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated from working, attending, or contributing to an event.  You all have been so supportive in past I know we can count on you to help us “Take Care of Our Own” seniors and those with disabilities in our community.
