Local Elsevier Branch Supports Serving Seniors

October 14, 2017 - Paul Downey

The fall-themed bazaar was held in the lobby of Elsevier’s building on B Street and open to everyone. Elsevier employees staffed the event and shared information about Serving Seniors.

Elsevier has supported Serving Seniors for many years: at least one Elsevier employee is a past board member, and the organization’s employees regularly volunteer at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center, serving lunch to the seniors.

We’re deeply grateful for the time, energy, funds and smiles Elsevier has donated and look forward to many more years of partnership!

Serving Seniors thanks our supporters this Holiday Season

December 20, 2016 - Serving Seniors

The Wellness Center has been filled with the holiday spirit with holiday parties, tree trimming, dancing and gift giving over the past few weeks.  It is heartwarming to see the influx of support this time of year and the way our community comes together to take care of our family of seniors.  The folks we serve are so incredibly thankful for gifts like toiletries and food, which are greatly needed, and they are equally as thankful for the time spent with all of our fabulous volunteers and donors.  Joy is spreading around here and with that comes an immense amount of gratitude from all of us at Serving Seniors. Thank you for all you do during the holidays and throughout the year.

Happy Halloween

October 31, 2016 - Serving Seniors


The whole month of October seniors have been filled with the Halloween spirit. The Wellness Center has been decorated with spooky ghouls and goblins. The National Charity League of San Dieguito hosted a Halloween party complete with candy, costumes and the Monster Mash!

Seniors also showcased their creativity at the pumpkin decorating contest, where our judges had a tough time choosing a winning pumpkin. Glitter, dry ice, markers, jewels and even spaghetti were used to make the pumpkins look their best.

Welcome to Old Hollywood!

June 6, 2016 - Serving Seniors
Seniors felt like movie stars at the 2nd Annual Senior Prom. Complete with a red carpet entrance, live band, prom photos, snacks and recognition of members of the Royal Court. Volunteers, staff and smiling seniors, including Prom Queen: Angel and Prom King: Frankie looked as if they were 18 again, dancing the afternoon away to the soundtrack of Old Hollywood. This soiree was generously planned and sponsored by the UCSD Life Scholars Program.
