The Senior Citizens Foundation of Shelter Island, Inc. (SCF) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Island seniors.
We are a non–profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
We support the Town’s Senior Services Office/Senior Center, as requested for special needs.
We support Island seniors in every way possible.
We have partnered with many Island organizations as part of our Silver Strands project to provide extra services for local seniors.
SCF bought an $85,000 wheelchair-accessible bus — known as the Silver Streak — to provide transportation for seniors to on- and off-Island events.
SCF also contributed to creating this shady spot on Wades Beach.
In recent years, we’ve supported the Historical Society’s wonderful Living History documentary interviews with senior citizens, helped subsidize the community Thanksgiving dinners — jointly with the Lions and the SI Firemen — and the St. Mary’s community Christmas dinners.
We’ve provided medical alert systems for those who needed them and entertainment for Senior Services BBQs.
Currently, we kick-started the library’s capital improvement campaign with a $75,000 pledge and joined the fund-raising campaign to upgrade the Presbyterian Church kitchen — the heart of the Senior Services’ nutrition program, including Meals on Wheels and Dinner Bell.
Please support us with your donations and your suggestions for future projects. You can buttonhole any member of the Board or drop a note to info@SISeniorFoundation.org.
