Pandemic pressures increase need for targeted outings
AUBURN — The Good Samaritan Society offers social accountability grants aimed at alleviating loneliness and pandemic isolation for older adults.
Maria Hudson of the Good Samaritan Center in Auburn has made it her goal this year to engage with seniors and find ways to get seniors to interact spiritually, emotionally, and physically with others in their community.
The society arranges monthly visits to the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Seniors Group, the Terrace Heights Potluck, and the Auburn Seniors Center.
Hudson: “I am very pleased to continue working with our senior population in Nemaha County and surrounding areas. »
Special outings and bus trips are planned for theatre, parks and community activities.
The $10,000 grants are intended to address the basic human needs of homelessness and hunger in the community as a whole.
