Bread & Roses Reaching Out to Seniors

Bread & Roses Presents has been reaching out to isolated populations providing hope and healing through live music for 46 years. As we go through this shelter-in-place, we have all developed a new understanding about what it means to be isolated. Our immune compromised seniors are especially feeling the isolation of not being able to go out or have visitors come to them.

 

Would you like to spread a little joy to seniors during this time?  

Please send an email message to info@breadandroses.org or mail a card (or cards!) with messages to:  

Bread & Roses Reaching Out to Seniors

233 Tamalpais Drive, Suite 100

Corte Madera, CA 94925  

 

We'll distribute your cards and messages to seniors in the facilities we serve throughout the Bay Area. Let us know if you have a county preference -- Marin/San Francisco/Alameda/Contra Costa/San Mateo/Sonoma/Napa.
