May is Older Americans Month, a time for us to recognize and honor the contributions that senior citizens have made, whether professionally or personally, to create our community.
At the RTC, we honor our seniors through dedicated transportation services like Silver STAR that connects senior living communities to essential services. And when Nevada was directed to stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, we partnered with Three Square to deliver 300 meals each week to homebound seniors. In fact, we were recently awarded nearly $80,000 in emergency grant funding to help Three Square continue to deliver nutritious food to clients through the Senior Hunger Program.
So take a moment to check in and thank the special seniors in your life – the coworker who helps make your day at work a little easier; the grocery store clerk who recognizes you every time you shop; the neighbor who doesn’t have family nearby; or your parent who has supported you since day one.
