Thanks for stopping by to browse Senior Services of Alexandria's auction! SSA has been busier than ever, working to ensure that Alexandria seniors receive the nutrition they need while they remain safely at home for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our sense of purpose has never been stronger or more urgent. With the help our supporters we've been able to reach more seniors than ever before, allowing these vulnerable citizens to remain safely sheltered at home while receiving the nutrition they need.
We are now delivering more than 2,500 meals each week (up from 900 weekly in February!), providing frozen meals to more than 125 new clients who are self-quarantined, and shopping and delivering groceries to more than 100 clients.
Our reservationists continue to arrange transportation for clients who are living with a disability and rely on ParaTransit for essential travel, including medical appointments and food shopping.
We’re matching volunteers for our "virtual" Friendly Visitor program, connecting them with seniors who would like a regular phone call, and we’ve started a new weekly e-gram, SSA Connection, with interesting and uplifting information for Alexandria’s older adults, and our Senior Ambassadors get updates to share with their communities three times a week.
But your support is essential to keeping this work going, especially with the loss of important revenue from our annual Gala. Please browse our listings and place your bids, and help us continue to keep Alexandria's seniors safe and healthy.
Thank you for your support!
