TLC for Seniors has $10,000 shortfall, 
seeking donations
CHELAN/MANSON - TLC for Seniors has been offering “in-person” visits to clients for almost three months. We are so thankful to have safe, personal contact with most of our TLC friends.  During August to mid- October 2020, we have met with six new seniors/families and brought on five TLC clients. Two new TLC volunteers have begun serving. During August and September friendship visits have doubled over “no contact” March-July levels. The length of visits is increasing from one hour/visit back to our usual two hours/visit as volunteers are able to provide relief from social isolation, caregiver support and transportation.
TLC, like other non-profits, is suffering financially from the reduction in grant opportunities this fall. TLC has a $10,000 shortfall and we appreciate any donations. You can give on line:, click Donate To TLC or by mail: TLC for Seniors, PO Box 635, Chelan WA 98816  
Since August 2017, Tender Loving Care, an Affiliate of Chelan Valley Hope, has provided services to help seniors live comfortably in their own homes: companionship, connection to other community services, support for caregivers and transportation for medical appointments and shopping. This is a volunteer organization that aligns your loved one with a friendly presence, all carried out under the Safe Start parameters of our Governor and CDC guidelines during this COVID-19 time.  TLC is actively seeking seniors who would like the friendship and support of a TLC volunteer.  Please call Claudia Swenson, 360-561-6090 or Kathy Miller, 509-470-2843 for more information.
