In Response to COVID-19

SAAA centers are closed to the public; however center staff  are not only continuing meal deliveries to the homebound and to the seniors who normally come to the centers, but have also provided a supply of extra shelf-stable meals to each senior recipient.    

Please donate generously to help us provide much needed items such as paper products and shelf-stable foods to our senior citizens.

SAAA is acting responsibly by closing its administrative offices to the public and encouraging employees, who can, to work remotely.

 

Thanks to everyone in the community who is helping!  You are the best!

17th Annual Generations Walkathon

On the way to a very special 17th Generations Walkathon, SAAA has been derailed by COVID-19.

We hope that we will be able to reschedule SAAA’s signature fundraiser later in the year and will let you know details as soon as life starts getting back to normal.  Your support means everything to us and even more so this year.

Special Thanks to Our Early Sponsors Who Have Already Committed Funding for the Walkathon.

We are most grateful to you!
