December 2022 News and Updates

December is a month of celebration. Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa are holidays you’ve likely heard of, but what about Las Pasados? Do you know what Boxing Day is all about? How about Bodhi Day?

This month on the blog, we’re taking a look at some of the end-of-year celebrations from around the globe. However you’re celebrating the end of the year, we wish you a very happy holiday from all of us at The Senior Alliance. We look forward to serving you in the new year!

Donate to Give Hunger a Holiday:

Donate Today

In Michigan, 1 in 7 older adults struggles with food insecurity. During the holidays, your generous donations enable The Senior Alliance to continue to meet the needs of food-insecure aging adults and adults with disabilities in our community when traditional meal-delivery services are unavailable. Because of you, in 2021, on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, over 2,800 older adults received a hot meal. One of those older adults told us, “We have been blessed by your generosity and kindness.”

This year, with your help, we hope to serve even more vulnerable members in our area. Your gift, whether $5 or $500, will help support the aging adults in our community – through this holiday season and beyond.
