Season of Giving

Curry Senior Center is not just celebrating the holidays but our 50th anniversary as well! The holidays can be challenging for seniors who are separated from friends and family. When you support Curry, you help combat senior isolation and give back to the community. Here are some opportunities for you to contribute to Curry’s Golden Jubilee during the Season of Giving.

Be A Santa to a Senior

When: Early November through December

Curry Senior Center is partnering with Home Instead Senior Care and CVS Pharmacies this holiday season to spread holiday cheer and support seniors at Curry! This partnership allows anyone who shops at one of the CVS Pharmacy stores in the city to purchase essential care items for our seniors.

Many Curry seniors are on fixed incomes and don’t have money at the end of the month for essential personal care items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soaps, and lotions. You can look for a holiday tree at the entrance of every CVS Pharmacy in San Francisco starting in early November. The tree’s ornaments contain the name and gift wish of a Curry Senior that can be purchased. A volunteer elf then delivers these items to Curry!

Giving Tuesday

When: November 29th

This global day is dedicated to giving back. Your contributions will help aging adults and Curry to be set up for success leading into the new year.

Your donation will support a myriad of vital Curry programs like technology support, escorted transportation to medical appointments, and home visits from Curry case managers and healthcare staff.

Host a Holiday Gift Drive Today

A gift drive is a great time to give back during the holiday season! Your whole family or company can be involved. Many Curry Seniors live on their own and are isolated from friends and family. Not having this network of connections can make the holidays an especially lonely time. However, you can help by hosting a gift drive to ensure everyone gets a gift!
