Message From Latoya Williams, SCA Project Manager:
I hope everyone had a relaxed and enjoyable holiday! First, I would like to thank all the seniors who participated in our program, and provided opportunities for our youth. As our Summer for Seniors Project continues, we will be delivering fresh vegetables, water, juice, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and even homemade dinners to show appreciation for seniors who served in the military, teachers, nurses, mentors, and role models. We are so thankful for you all! No senior is left out! Why? Because without you there would be no us!
These were the most requested vegetables from our seniors:
● Sweet potatoes – a great source of antioxidants and diabetic-friendly vegetable
● Okra – a good source of magnesium, and helps lower the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc.
● Cabbage – helps lower cholesterol and keeps the stomach lining and intestines strong
● Squash “Summer Squash” – a great source of vitamins A, B6, and C. Also high in potassium
