A charitable service organization by and for the residents of Sun City Roseville

Article for May 2022:

 

Sun City Roseville Foundation 2022

The annual Friends of the Foundation letter was mailed in March to all residents in Sun City Roseville.  So far, this fundraising campaign has been successful, and we thank you for your continued generosity.  Now you may ask, how does the Foundation use those funds?  Let me provide you with a couple of examples.

 

The Foundation’s Home Maintenance Program is one of our most widely used programs.  In the first quarter, the Home Maintenance Team made 350 house calls and provided 481 different services.  The most popular service requests included changing batteries in smoke alarms, replacing non-functioning smoke alarms, replacing light bulbs, and replacing address light bulbs.  The Foundation stocks the Maintenance Team’s van with basic supplies and our resident volunteers provide the service at no cost, although a donation is always appreciated.  Please note, this program relies heavily on volunteers so if you are interested in helping, please contact Doug Smoot at scrfhomeservices@gmail.com.

 

The Foundation also provides funding to Sunshine Services which offers many programs to our community such as Caregiver Relief, Individual Care, Medical Equipment Loan and Dial-A-Ride Transportation.  It’s important to know that Sunshine Services is a separate entity from the Foundation and is administered by a staff of SCR volunteers.

 

The Foundation’s next fundraiser is our Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for Friday, June 3.  There will be lots of fun games and prizes with tournament play at both Timber Creek and the Sierra Pines golf courses.  Entry forms are available in both Pro Shops.  Must sign-up by May 31.  If you have any questions, please contact Dave Happe at drhappe@outlook.com.

 

Save the date!  The Foundation’s Board of Directors will be inviting the community to a presentation on June 18.  This presentation will provide residents with an overview of the many programs and services the Foundation provides our community.  We hope you’ll join us.
