Thunderbirds Charities Helps Homebound Seniors Stay Independent

Thunderbirds Charities Helps Homebound Seniors Stay Independent

Thunderbirds Charities, the charitable giving arm of the Thunderbirds, hosts of the WM Phoenix Open, awarded $25,000 to Aster Aging, Inc. (Aster). This generous award supports the Aster Neighbors Program. Through this program, volunteers are matched with homebound seniors in the East Valley, providing assistance with essential daily activities such as transportation to medical appointments, prescription pick-up, help with grocery shopping, and friendly visits and phone calls. Through these activities, the Neighbors program reduces isolation, increases access to essential medical and basic need resources, and promotes independence via improved nutrition, physical health, and emotional well-being.

“We are very grateful to Thunderbirds Charities for their support,” said Deborah Schaus, Chief Executive Officer of Aster. “Our Neighbors program enables local homebound residents to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible, empowering these individuals and strengthening our community.”

Aster Aging has such a positive impact on so many homebound seniors in our East Valley community and we excited to support such a great mission,” said Pat Williams, President of Thunderbirds Charities.
