OF LOWER MERION & NARBERTH
THOSE IN NEED
Since 1976, ElderNet has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the at-risk elderly and disabled adults of Lower Merion and Narberth. ElderNet's partnerships for outreach have allowed us to expand our programs and services to include low income individuals and families in need.
Find out how you can contribute to the members of our community through donations of time and money.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors is possible only through the generous gifts of volunteer time and community support.
ElderNet's Annual Food For Thought at Appleford will be held on Sunday, May 17th from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Orpheus Club will sing for us again this year. Honorees will be announced at a later date.
Locally, ElderNet is a vocal advocate for enabling the frail elderly, disabled and low income community residents of Lower Merion and Narberth to live in dignity and safety in their homes, and to increase their quality of life.
Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why we need your help. Hold a food drive with your school or business to help your neighbors in need. Bring donations of canned or packaged food and produce or dairy to ElderNet's Ada Mutch Food Pantry.
These days, it seems no sooner are the Thankgsiving dishes cleared than people start dashing off to Black Friday sales. Let the season of over consumption begin. Yet here on the Main Line, where most are perceived to live beneath a blanket of cozy comforts, there are many people existing on the fringes. They are the "have nots" among us and their stories of how they've gotten to the edges can fill books. Underemployed, unemployed, physical and/or mental health issues; a myriad of bad luck stories that snowball until lives that were otherwise on track can suddenly go off the rails.
