Impact February 2016: Senior Support

​February 201​​7 donations will be posted when available; below are the ​​February 201​6 Impact donations so you can see the organizations the Foundation has previously impacted.

The Foundation was proud to donate $2,500 to Fox Valley Hands of Hope. Fox Valley Hands of Hope is the new name for the volunteer-driven, non-profit organization previously known as Fox Valley Volunteer Hospice. The name more closely aligns to the services the organization provides. It reflects a new strategic direction to expand services that provide hope for those experiencing grief while continuing to provide supportive care to those who are dealing with life-threatening illnesses.  Since 1981, FVHH has served more than 22,000 clients and their families in the greater Fox Valley area of Illinois.

As a long-time supporter of the Alzheimer’s Association, the Foundation donated $3500 in support of its mission to advance research to end Alzheimer's and dementia while enhancing care for those living with the disease. In addition, FT Cares will once again be a table host at the Illinois Chapter’s Reason to Hope luncheon.  Reason to Hope is a powerful one-hour fundraising luncheon and program on Alzheimer’s disease and the mission-critical work of the Alzheimer's Association.

Twilight Wish Foundation’s mission is to honor and enrich the lives of deserving seniors through wish granting celebrations that connect generations. To that end, the Foundation donated $1,800 to grant the wishes of:

Dorothy G., 78, Royal Palm Beach, FL: Dorothy gave much of her time helping her family members before they passed away. She now lives alone and has trouble getting up from her couch due to a chronic medical condition.  She would like a lift chair to make this easier and she cannot afford one as she lives a fixed income.

Hortense W., 81, Farrell, PA: Hortense lost four great-grandchildren tragically in a house fire many years ago.  The family was never able to afford a grave stone for them. Her greatest wish is to get one.  

The Foundation granted $1200 to Senior Home Sharing an organization that offers seniors with limited incomes a residential housing option resembling homes they have lived in for decades. The donation will provide two residents three meals a day for an entire year.
