FSL (Foundation for Senior Living) has received $50,000 from BOK Financial Arizona for its COVID-19 relief efforts. When the stay-at-home order went into effect, FSL shifted many programs to serve seniors and adults with disabilities at home instead of at a senior center or Adult Day Health Center. As a result, their expenses went up by at least 25 percent to meet the demand.
“When we heard the need for FSL’s programs had dramatically increased, we wanted to step in and help,” says Dave Ralston, Arizona Market CEO. “They have seen a 56 percent increase in meals delivered to Arizona homebound seniors. We’re proud to partner with FSL to help seniors get access to food and necessities.”
In addition to home-delivered meals, FSL has delivered 188 bags of groceries to 71 households in need. They are offering this program to anyone over the age of 60 or with a disability or chronic health condition.
