MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
2020 was a challenging year for San Diego’s seniors. The pandemic affected them, and it affected how we could effectively serve them. Through a focused effort on the part of our Executive Director Sarah Benson, our Program Manager Becky Noel, and a dedicated Board of Directors, the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing weathered the storm.
In 2021 the journey through the pandemic continued. Becky moved out of state but remained as Program Manager. While remote, she was able to address the needs of seniors who reached out for resources. Eventually Becky moved on and Lorene Morris took over the position of Program Coordinator. She quickly picked up where Becky left off, and by the end of the year we wound up helping more seniors than in 2020.
Our programs carried on through 2021 and created wonderful opportunities. Contributors and sponsors generously supported our summertime matching campaign held in honor of the fifth anniversary of the opening of the Information Resource Center and our annual Festival of Trees (again held virtually) in December. A core group of seniors continued showing up each and every Friday at 10:00am for Coffee Connection, bringing seniors together from around the country.
The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing is poised for even further growth in 2022. As brighter days from the pandemic lie ahead, we have abundant opportunities to provide meaningful services and connection for seniors throughout North County.
Through volunteer growth, additional programs, and a desire to support our senior population, the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing is well positioned to create even more tremendous opportunities to serve our clientele. Thank you for your involvement and support.
