Project Homecoming: Hospital Release and Recovery Program
Upon release from a local hospital, Broomfield Seniors received five meals on Wheels free. This is a great way
to let seniors know about the Meals on Wheels program. In 2017, 70 residents took advantage of this.
Healthy Hearts and Birthday Lunch Sponsorship
Healthy Hearts lunches are the most popular lunches of the month. On average, ninety seniors enjoyed this nutritious lunch, twice a month, at a reduced rate of $2.00. The lunch is followed by an educational presentation
by the Public Health Nutritionist.
Lakeshore Café celebrates seniors’ birthdays on a monthly basis. For some, this is the only chance they get
to celebrate their birthday. SRB treats them to lunch.

fill 170 bags in January 2017.
Funds were used to pay for supplies for low income seniors in order to perform minor home maintenance and repairs.
SRB funded additional equipment needed in the loan closet; transport chairs, lightweight wheelchairs, transfer benches, shower chairs, etc. In 2017,103 people took advantage of the loan closet.
