HEMET – Desert Hills Memory Care, located at 25818 Columbia Street in Hemet, is collecting nonperishable items and canned food to be delivered to the Valley Community Pantry in Hemet.
For seniors living with the challenges of memory loss, volunteering is a meaningful activity that offers a sense of contribution, connectivity and purpose – aspects of fulfillment that the symptoms of memory loss often take away. Desert Hills Memory Care residents make it a priority to give back to their surrounding community throughout the year.
The Valley Community Pantry in Hemet has provided emergency food and shelter to local Hemet residents since 1965. In addition to collecting and distributing food and offering emergency shelter, the community pantry provides utility and rent assistance. In 2016 alone, the organization served over 27,000 people.
To help Desert Hills Memory Care residents in their efforts to support the community pantry, contact Rachel Wallace, the life enrichment director at Desert Hills Memory Care, to inquire about food donations at (951) 652-1837 or email [email protected].
