Founder's Letter

Hi Folks!

Can you believe it’s August already??? Yipes . . . where has 2014 gone??? August and September are the warmest months of the year in San Diego County. To help our seniors deal with the heat, we have Beat the Heat Tips in our DEPOT DISPATCH August Senior Newsletter and "COOL ZONES" tucked into each senior's August Senior Emergency Meal Box with their DEPOT DISPATCH Senior Newsletter. Please click on "COOL ZONES" to see the list of air conditioned sites that welcome those who need to rest and cool off. Click on DEPOT DISPATCH to download the August Senior Newsletter with summer heat tips.

Well, here’s the latest and the greatest on what is going on at The Angel’s Depot!


"Angel 01" . . . our faithful delivery truck just received a makeover compliments of our Founding Partners: Harrah's Resort Southern California (their new name) and Caesar's Foundation. We changed our logo several years ago to reflect a bolder RED-WHITE-NAVY BLUE color scheme and our "Angel 01" now reflects our new logo and Harrah's new name. We can't thank them enough!

Our seniors and their pets are so very grateful to the Helen Woodward Animal Center for their gifts of “AniMeals." The collaboration with The Angel's Depot is a beautiful example of two community nonprofits working well together with great enthusiasm. We all know how important pets are to the wellbeing of our lonely and isolated seniors. Sometimes their pet is their last friend. We also know they likely feed their beloved pets from their Senior Emergency Meal Boxes if they have no other food for them. This gift of pet food is truly a blessing. Please see the new AniMeals” page link on our Home Page.





Stay tuned . . . more exciting news to come . . . as always . . . YOU are the wind beneath our WINGS . . . we couldn’t make this program happen without all of YOU!
