Homebound seniors and those with disabilities in north Iowa got a big lift recently by virtue of a grant being awarded to Elderbridge Agency on Aging.
The John K. and Luise V. Hanson Family Foundation of Forest City announced that they are awarding Elderbridge a generous donation of $10,000. The funds will be used by Elderbridge to purchase and distribute Emergency Shelf Stable pantry meals to help reduce hunger among elderly homebound residents and adults with disabilities in the north central Iowa communities served by the agency.
“Our vision is to support, strengthen and enhance the quality of life in Forest City and its neighboring communities, now and for future generations,” is part of the mission expressed by John K. and Luise V. Hanson on the foundation website.
The foundation, also known as the Hanson Family Foundation, has a special interest in projects that strengthen families through the arts and culture, family recreation and youth development and education. Recognizing the value of innovated medical treatment to families, the foundation also has philanthropic ties to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Elderbridge staff, directors, board members and clients all say thank you to the Hanson Family Foundation for this most generous donation.
