"To make a real difference in a seniors world is a motivating factor behind everything that I do on a daily basis. Running for Snowflake Queen seems like a natural progression of my daily mission.

Since 2003, I have seen first hand the isolation that many of our seniors face daily, and the detrimental impact of that isolation. The Senior Companions program helps not only the homebound seniors receiving services, it also helps the volunteers that provide the services. I am honored to help raise not only money but awareness for this important program." - Caroline Brooks Wilder

Story

Did you know that 40% of seniors in our community experience isolation on a regular basis? Can you imagine growing older in your home without the support of any family, friends, neighbors, or financial stability? Whom would you call for help?

For over 300 seniors in Knox County, the answer is the CAC Senior Companion Program. This unique program mobilizes senior volunteers to provide support to homebound, lonely, and isolated older adults - free of charge.

The Senior Companion volunteers receive a small stipend for their service which helps them purchase necessities such as food and medicine. Your donation today will go towards covering the stipend, meals, and transportation costs for Senior Companion Volunteers.
