Will you help a senior in need before the year ends?
The holidays are a busy time of year, filled with all sorts of events and parties. And during all the fun and gift-giving, we’d like to ask you to slow down for just a few moments and consider giving to meet a critical need.
For more than 30 years, the Good Sam Fund has provided for residents in our communities across the care continuum. When our precious seniors have faced unexpected expenses and their resources are depleted, the Good Sam Fund provides enough money for those who meet the eligibility guidelines to pay for rent, food, medical care, personal care and clothing.
Joanne is one of those residents:
Joanne is in her 90s. She has lived a vibrant and meaningful life at CRISTA. Five years ago, after living in CRISTA Senior Living for many years, Joanne moved to our assisted living apartments where she receives costly nursing care. Since then, she has struggled to cover the cost of her medications, which have increasingly become unaffordable. Joanne spent most of her investments to cover a recent hospitalization and now her meager social security check isn’t enough to cover her room, board and cost of care.
CRISTA Senior Living’s mission is to care for women like Joanne, answering the call to serve all in our care with Christ’s love. By donating to The Good Samaritan Fund, you make care possible for people like Joanne. The legacy of our benevolent fund has served many residents over the last 30 years because of donors like you. Will you join us in being the hands and feet of Christ to our residents? By donating to The Good Samaritan Fund, you are fulfilling the Lord’s command …
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.James 1:27
