Adopt-a-Senior and Beat the Heat

Some seniors in Scottsdale need support. In order to assist our neighbors in need, Scottsdale has created two seasonal programs focused on assisting income eligible, isolated seniors. 

Adopt a Senior is our Holiday program, running October - December. 

Beat the Heat is a Summer program where necessary summer supplies are delivered to home-bound seniors.

We rely on donations to keep these programs going! If you aren't able to adopt a senior, a monetary donation will go to programs supporting seniors in Scottsdale. 

Adopt-a-Senior -  Thanksgiving

Thanks to YOU! All seniors have been adopted for the 2020 holidays! We had a total of 320 seniors that were adopted. Even though our program is done for the season, we still do accept monetary and in-kind donations al year along. 

Gift cards can be dropped off or mailed to the Via Linda Senior Center (10440 E. Via Linda).

We will also happily accept monetary donations, please click on the link below and be sure to include "Adopt-a-Senior" in the message line.

Please come back in August for information about Adopt-A-Senior 2021!
