Annual Events

Senior Resources hosts several annual fundraising events to support our programs. We welcome you to get involved, whether you want to run or walk in a 5K, volunteer to help at an event, become a sponsor of an event, or support our programs with a donation.

March for Meals

March for Meals began with Senior Resources in 1997 and is now a nationally recognized fundraising event for Meals on Wheels America. Every year, nearly 300 runners and walkers participate in March for Meals, as well as 60 to 80 volunteers.  In addition to raising additional funds to serve the Richland County seniors in need, this event raises awareness of the issues of senior poverty and food instability. 

Every Senior Counts

One of our major annual fundraisers, Every Senior Counts is a luncheon held on the first Thursday in November each year. Every Senior Counts showcases the programs of Senior Resources, with some of our clients in attendance to share their stories of how our services have helped them maintain healthy and independent lifestyles. Table captains are needed to make this event a success. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. 

Share the Love Holiday Campaign

This holiday campaign is held during November and December each year. By making a donation to Senior Resources in someone’s honor, you will provide meal delivery to the elderly in our community. For a $5 donation, a card will be sent to the recipient you choose informing them of the donation and wishing them a happy holiday. You will also receive an acknowledgement of your gift. It’s the gift that gives again.

A Mother's Love / Honor Thy Father

Honor your mother or father, or another special person in your life, with a donation to Senior Resources. Your $10 donation will provide services to a frail senior in our community who doesn’t have the support of nearby relatives. The recipient will receive a Mother’s Day or Father's Day card and notice of the donation made in his/her honor. 

The Birthday That Gives

In honor of someone special, your gift of $10 will provide a hot, nutritious meal delivered by Meals on Wheels to the homebound and elderly.  Senior Resources will send an attractive Meals On Wheels birthday card to the person you designate, letting them know you have donated a heart-felt gift of a nutritious meal in their honor or memory.  You will receive an acknowledgement card of your donation.  Please allow seven (7) days advance notice to ensure on-time delivery.
