Supporting Our Older Neighbors

East Side Elders needs your help to keep older community members fed, healthy, and supported, especially as we continue through the pandemic.  This year, we have a lofty goal for Give to the Max Day and Give to the Max Day Early Giving.  We want to raise $4,000 - that is enough to provide free groceries to 100 older adults once a month for 4 months.  Our free grocery program, Fetch!, helps our older neighbors gain access to fresh food including milk (and nondairy options), protein, produce, and personal care/household needs like toilet paper and dish soap.  And our amazing team of volunteers brings those groceries right to those in need with free deliveries!  

Here are just a few ways East Side Elder serves in the community:

  • Delivering free groceries every month to more than 95 older adults
  • Partnering with local restaurants and organizations to deliver free meals 
  • Organizing a mask collection and delivering supplies 
  • Distributing Letters to Elders
  • Providing free coloring books 
  • Offering supportive phone calls to help lessen social isolation
  • Providing free fall cleanup
  • Offering wellness services and footcare

Our clients are resilient and fiercely independent, and it is our mission to help them remain in their homes safely, with independence and dignity throughout this crisis, and beyond.  With your help, we will continue to work with our seniors to bring them the resources and support they need.


Neighbors helping neighbors: Help seniors stay in the home or community they want for as long as they want.


East Side Elders helps seniors in Dayton’s Bluff, Payne-Phalen, and Conway-Battle Creek live full and rewarding lives — in the home and community they want — for as long as possible. Our teams of volunteers, students and community members provide a wide range of services and activities that give the necessary support and resources to our older neighbors wherever they call home.  

East Side Elders is a member of the Living at Home Network.  For over twenty-five years, non-profit, community-owned Living at Home/Blog Nurse Programs have helped elders stay healthy while living in their own homes.
