You can make a difference!
A $20 donation pays for a year’s worth of healthy produce and groceries for a senior in need. Grey Bears volunteers deliver shopping bags of nutritious food to 4,200 Santa Cruz County seniors every week. Many of those served have no other resource for healthy food. Thank you for being as generous as you can.
