Helping During COVID-19 Shutdown
Non-profits are also businesses, and the Vintage Senior Center is closed under Governor Wolf's shutdown.
But being closed does not mean we are inactive! Vintage is providing food to seniors in need, answering questions by phone, and making hundreds of wellness check phone calls to our older adults.
If you live nearby, there are ways you can help:
- Donate food that will be distributed to the seniors - we are in need of shelf-stable items like soup, crackers, canned goods, pasta, rice, paper products, individual snacks, fruit cups, etc
- If you live locally are leaving the house for errands, offer to drop off a food bag to a senior in need. Call 412-361-5003 to learn more.
- Have kids at home? Create a family project and write notes that we will include in the food bags, "Dear Neighbor" or "Dear Vintage Member" ... these notes will help the seniors feel connected to others. Mail or drop off to Vintage, 421 N. Highland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206
