“I am so grateful for the opportunity to run for Snowflake Queen! I am running for the Snowflake Ball Queen because I believe that all older adults have the right to fulfilling, happy lives engaged with their community. The Senior Companion Program provides caring social supports to older adults and helps reduce issues such as isolation and loneliness. This program is such a needed resource and it provides invaluable services and support to the Knoxville Community. I am excited to support a cause that grows our community and brings people together.” - Emma Parrott

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.
