#AdvanceFolk Food Security Program
We have started our #AdvanceFolk Food Security Program to provide food to the elderly who are experiencing food insecurity. We were approved for the Panera Bread Dough-Nation program which provides us with baked goods to distribute. We will soon be expanding this program to include fruits and vegetables, as well as free services from nutritionists, dieticians, and local chefs to help the #AdvanceFolk prepare healthy meals.
#AdvanceFolk Adult Disposable Underwear BANK
We have started a new program! We now supply, free of charge, adult disposable underwear for those #AdvanceFolk who need them and cannot afford to purchase them.
#AdvanceFolk Scam & Fraud Protection Education
We educate the #AdvanceFolk on how to spot and avoid scams and fraud. We help protect those that we serve by teaching them how to identity and detect potential scams that target the elderly.
