Elderbridge Agency on Aging (Elderbridge) is pleased to announce it has received a $500 grant from the Shopko Foundation. Funds will be used to support emergency meals in Estherville IA.
The Shopko Foundation granted a check to Elderbridge during a check presentation ceremony that took place on August 23 at the Shopko Hometown store in Estherville. Elderbridge’s Shelly Sindt, CEO was present to receive the check.
Emergency meals will help to support the Elderbridge mission to advocate for and empower older adults, caregivers, and individuals with disabilities to pursue independent and healthy lives in their community. Our project impacts the needs of those adults with disabilities with limited resources who are struggling with food insecurity and the homeless. It also serves homebound seniors who have no access to food when there is inclement weather preventing delivery or causing a meal site closure.
Founded in 2004, the Shopko Foundation is a 501(c)3 corporation operated exclusively for charitable purposes. To maximize its impact, the Foundation has a narrow focus on areas of giving that support the health of Shopko customers, teammates, and communities. Funds support established non-profit organizations with a proven record of success in maintaining solid, critical programs or innovative new organizations and programs supported by established non-profits or successful leadership.
The Shopko Foundation believes in providing “the stuff that counts®” and enhancing the lives of neighbors in every community that Shopko serves.
