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 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 -  Holiday Program

Brighten the holiday season for Scottsdale Seniors in need. The program starts accepting donations in October and culminates with the delivering of gift bags during the holidays. Sign up to Adopt a Senior, and provide support throughout the holiday.

The number of recipients has risen every year. We now have over 300 seniors as recipients of the Adopt-a-Senior program.

Fill out an online form to adopt a senior (or more) and receive a wish list for your assigned senior(s). Donations must be delivered by December 8 OR you may contribute funds to help fulfill unmet needs.
