Neighbors helping neighbors. That’s sometimes all it takes to keep seniors in their homes and communities as they grow older. Connecting seniors with people, information, resources and communities is the mission of a local non-profit, Community Senior Services. CSS is celebrating 40 years of service with an unusual fundraiser: Over the Edge. Donors who contribute $1,000 will rappel off the 10-story Ontario Airport Hilton Hotel.
Shirlee’s owner Konnie Vong has accepted the challenge and is asking members to raise $1,000 so that she can donate and rappel on our behalf. Please help by dropping off a few dollars at the front desk in the next couple weeks. The event takes place on Saturday, December 5 at the Ontario Hilton Hotel.
Rappelling will be a thrill for Konnie, and she will be thinking of our support as she looks out at the sky, holds onto her rope, and makes her way safely down.
Shirlee’s is all about fitness of mind, body and spirit. Joining together and giving back not only helps seniors in need, it also creates a sense of community and empowerment among ourselves. Thank you for your generosity.
