Yakima & Selah Neighbors' Network October Donor Match

Published on 10/17/2019

Yakima and Selah Neighbors' Network announces donor match of up to $10,000 this month

The Yakima and Selah Neighbors' Network, a non-profit focused on helping seniors feel connected to the community, has announced that two families will match donations of up to $10,000 this month.

The volunteer-based membership organization serves as a support system for older people in the community and helps them stay independent. Membership includes access to resources, such as transportation, grocery trips and light housekeeping. 

Chrissy Schott, the organization's program manager, said any amount will help their organization grow and continue to serve its members and the community.

The organization welcomes anyone 50 years and older to join as a member. Schott said they hope the organization can be inter generational, and include a wide age range of volunteers as the organization continues to grow. 

The group currently has 47 new members and about 50 new volunteers. 

"It's really just another piece of the puzzle or tool in your toolkit as you age to just really remain independent as long as you can at home," said Schott. 

Schott said the organization not only works to help keep older adults living in their homes longer, but also serves as a social support network. The group has regular events and meetups to keep its members feeling engaged in the community.


We appreciate our business sponsors and the grants we have received.
