FROM OUR BLOG

No Age Limits – A College Student’s Perspective

In our youth-oriented society, Aging as Art serves as a unique and meaningful way to give a voice to older adults who fall into the shadows or may feel overlooked. This exhibit sheds a light on the diverse aging experiences of seniors; it asks the audience to take a moment to appreciate the elders in our community, consider their experiences, and value their perspectives.

Gratitude is Contagious – A Holiday Food Box

Food insecurity and hunger are a harsh reality for many struggling seniors in Orange County. While many people are able to celebrate and enjoy all that they have to be thankful for during the holidays, it's also an important time to remember to give to those in need.

Bringing Joy to Others

The impact of the SmileMakers Project is heartwarming for everyone involved. We receive precious handwritten thank you letters filled with joy from these seniors for their sole holiday remembrance.
