17th Annual Adopt a Senior Event
For the 17th year in a row, MEA’s Adopt-A-Senior Committee put on another special event for 50 deserving Park and Recreation Department senior volunteers. Special guest Councilmember Todd Gloria took a great deal of time to acknowledge and applaud this special group of seniors for their countless contributions to the City of San Diego. Senior volunteers field calls and assist guests who call and visit various public locations including the City Administration Building (CAB) and Balboa Park’s Senior Lounge. In total, senior volunteers account for over 1,000 volunteer hours each month! We are so lucky to have such a willing and capable group who lend their time and institutional knowledge to assist others. MEA looks forward to taking part in next year’s Adopt-A-Senior event in order to highlight the volunteer efforts of our amazing seniors.
Special thanks to Ann Smith and the law firm Tosdal, Smith, Steiner & Wax, California Bank & Trust, San Diego Gas & Electric and the Rancho Bernardo Community Council for their generous donations which funded 100% of the costs of this event!
