Make Cards for Seniors

Looking for a creative and safe way to help our community?
The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for each and every one of us. It has brought even more isolation to our seniors, making it more difficult to connect with them. Santa for Seniors is collecting homemade cards, letters or artwork to give to our isolated seniors. This is a simple way to cheer up someone’s day and let them know they’re in people’s hearts and minds during this difficult time.

LCSNW Interview with TV Tacoma – CityLine

May is Older Americans Month – “Make Your Mark”
This theme was selected to encourage and celebrate countless contributions that older adults make to our communities. Volunteer Coordinator, Nikiesha Thornton talks about our focus on seniors in Tacoma, what they do for our community, and what it means to be part of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and the Senior Companion Program (SCP). 

Helping Tacoma Seniors During COVID-19

All of us are feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, but our older neighbors are particularly vulnerable to this virus. Of the 123 deaths reported in Washington state as of March 24, 80 percent were 70 or older.

LCS Northwest President and CEO David Duea and Chief Development Officer Elliot Stockstad recently sat down with Marguerite Martin, host of the “Move to Tacoma” podcast. They discussed how the COVID-19 coronavirus affects the elderly and offered ways listeners can support local seniors.
