Help Low Income Seniors This Holiday Season

Help Low Income Seniors This Holiday Season

Every year, the Adopt-A-Senior Program serves low-income seniors and disabled adults in Scottsdale. The generosity from the sponsors and donors around the community has a tremendous impact on brightening the seniors' and adults' holiday season. Every year the participants fill out a "wish list" and sponsors from all over the Valley go out and shop. The senior centers rely heavily on donations to keep the program running. The centers are currently accepting sponsorships and donations.

Please visit ScottsdaleAZ.gov and search "Adopt-A-Senior" to get involved.
