NORFOLK, Va. (June 27, 2023) — Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia has received a $7,500 grant from the Glick Community Relief Fund, a grant program of Glick Philanthropies that supports local nonprofit organizations providing access to basic needs. The grant was one of 87 totaling $500,000 to organizations supporting communities where Gene B. Glick Company properties are located during this time of heightened demand and economic uncertainty. This grant was one of five directed to Virginia-based organizations.
Senior Services provides seniors and their caregivers with access to programs and services so they may live their lives with choice and dignity in their communities. This grant will be used to support our Personal Care Program for older adults who are recovering from an illness or medical procedure.
“We are pleased that Glick Philanthropies recognizes the value of a strong and vibrant older adult community,” said Steve Zollos, CEO, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia. “With the help of Glick Philanthropies and other likeminded individuals and organizations, we are building a stronger Hampton Roads that recognizes the value of our older adults, and provides the support that is needed to keep our senior adults healthy, active, and engaged in our community.
2023 marks the eighth year that Glick Philanthropies has administered its property nominated grant program. Through this initiative, over $4 million has been awarded to 242 organizations in communities where Gene B. Glick Company properties are located.
“Glick Philanthropies is committed to offering support to nonprofit organizations that are providing essential basic needs to our most vulnerable communities,” said Ben Grande, Director of Philanthropy for Glick Philanthropies. “The efforts of these organizations are especially critical now as our communities continue to face high prices due to inflation.
