Help ABQ Seniors with a Silver Horizons Food Donations Box in Your Business

Silver Horizons is an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization

Did you know New Mexico is second in the nation for senior hunger and senior malnutrition?

About 85 percent of Silver Horizons’ clients are living on less than $750 a month. Many seniors in our community are struggling to get by on an income of less than $500 per month. Silver Horizons mission is to provide extra help for these extremely low income and at risk seniors in the greater Albuquerque area.

Silver Horizon’s senior clients need help with critical basic needs.  Unfortunately, most indicators point to an increasing need as our population continues to age and the number of low-income seniors grows.

 

How You Can HelpSilver Horizons Food Drive Box

One great way you can help Silver horizons provide for extremely low income seniors in Albuquerque is hosting a food drive at your business. Hosting a food drive is a great team building activity and create connection in your community.

Encourage your customers, employees and youth in your local community to contribute nonperishable food item donations and unopened and unused personal hygiene items and pet products including:

  • Canned food items
  • Dry food items (such as cereal, rice, pasta, etc.)
  • Toilet paper
  • Toothpaste / Toothbrushes / Floss
  • Hand and bar soap
  • Dish soap
  • Combs and brushes
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Body wash
  • Wet and dry dog food
  • Wet and dry cat food
  • Kitty litter
