CRITICAL NEEDS OF RESIDENTS DURING COVID19 PANDEMIC:
MRC serves a diverse group of seniors. Many of those seniors reside in one of MRC’s 5 Affordable Housing communities located in Bryan, Texas or La Porte, Texas. These properties are HUD subsidized with many residents that may experience food insecurity on a normal day. Choosing between medication and meals is a very real struggle for many of these residents under normal circumstances. Since the escalation of the COVID19 pandemic, this concern has been dramatically magnified for these residents. Your generous donations will go towards the needs of these residents to ensure they have ample food and supplies or other needs that may arise.
BE AN ANGEL THIS MINUTE. CHANGE A LIFE.
From time to time, funds have been known to run out from under a senior resident unexpectedly, through no fault of their own. With your gift to the Benevolent Care fund below, we can keep them secure in their homes and ensure their ongoing needs are met.
Besides the funds below, you can make a gift to the MRC community you designate, establish a memorial fund in honor of a loved one, or do almost anything you may have in mind (though please do check with us first, as nonprofit status means there are rules we must abide by). You have the choice to give anonymously or join other wonderful donors in our Annual Gifts list.
- Benevolent Care – Some residents’ biggest fear is outliving their financial resources through no fault of their own. You can help us help them stay in their MRC residence, living with dignity among their neighbors and friends.
- Education – Methodist Retirement Communities promotes lifelong learning through a variety of programs, including the intergenerational WYSE, or Wisdom for Youth from Senior Expertise that benefits both our residents and high school seniors and juniors. We hope WYSE can be a breakthrough in connecting high school students with seniors in meaningful ways.
- Construction of New Communities – As a nonprofit organization, turning the dream of a new Healthy Living community into the reality of serving more souls depends in part on major donations for start-up capital. Without the support of individuals, couples, families and organizations who share our commitment to provide senior care in a faith-based environment, we might only be in the same building where we started 55 years ago.
