Community Engagement Opportunities in Preston County, WV
Seniors and individuals with disabilities in communities throughout Randolph County depend on the services of Preston County Senior Citizens, Inc. to access essential nutrition, personal care services, transportation, and much more. We rely on the kindness of individuals and businesses throughout the region for their generous contributions of time and financial support. As the reliability of public service funding remains uncertain, we depend on your support now more than ever.
Providing Help and Hope to Those Who Need It Most
When you choose to donate your time and resources, you can make a real difference in the lives of some of our most vulnerable neighbors, many of which have no one else they can depend on. We are often the option of last resort for seniors who have lost the support of a spouse and feel lost and disillusioned, those battling serious disability and illness alone, and folks who simply feel they have nowhere else to turn.
Whether an individual is lonely and in need of companionship, needs a ride to get groceries, a hot meal, or full-time assistance with daily living tasks, we answer the call. Without your support, we simply would not be able to provide the level of services necessary to support those who need help the most. No matter your talents, ability, age, or resources, you can create a brighter tomorrow for those who have reached out a hand asking for help. Together, we can answer their plea.
