Senior Services Charity
Attend, give, and know you are: delivering Meals on Wheels, supporting senior centers where our older adults gather, providing fitness, balance and falls prevention classes, giving a ride to the doctor, other transportation services, home repair, giving a senior an opportunity to volunteer and feel engaged.
The passion behind this fundraiser in support of senior citizens started because of Iva Handfull's love of her grandfather "Hubcap Charlie". Hubcap Charlie is 91 years old and continues to entertain his senior citizen peers at nursing homes and senior centers around NW Indiana. He sings, dances, clogs, polkas, and pantomimes with the Knights of Columbus. As Hubcap Charlie ages, Iva wants to be sure he has everything he needs to continue enjoying life and being able to do what he loves entertain others senior citizens. There are many senior citizens around Seattle who do not have the support that Hubcap Charlie has, and Discontinued Trim wants to help them live comfortably and maintain their independence.
Let's not forget our elders. Join us for an exciting evening, and make a difference in the lives of seniors.
A special thank you to www.whitehalldesign.com, www.pocphoto.com and www.zippydogs.com for their help with design and promotion.
