The Rochester Housing Authority, working with several other agencies, will offer the first, but hopefully not the last, Senior Day of Caring this weekend.
John Kennedy, service coordinator for the RHA, said the event will be held on Saturday, Aug, 20, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the RHA at 77 Old Farm Lane.
“We are working with Boxes of Love and the Share Fund to bring our seniors what they need always, but need now more than ever,” Kennedy said. “This is the first of its kind event, but I know Boxes of Love is planning a second in Portsmouth soon. Most seniors living in housing make $1,000 a month. Try paying for housing, and then buying food and paying for electricity. People are struggling and we need to help.”
