Supporting Seniors Sheltering in Place

Since the first week of July 2020, the CORE Foundation and Cornerstones have collaborated on an initiative to provide support to local seniors who have faced additional challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative came about as a result of discussions between senior executives at CORE and Cornerstones looking to identify ways to provide additional assistance in the community during this crisis. Cornerstones identified its senior population of close to two dozen seniors throughout Reston and Herndon as a population who might benefit from some additional care and connection while quarantined as a result of the virus.

Every two weeks, a group of volunteers from Cornerstones and/or CORE make a delivery to approximately half a dozen seniors in the Reston/Herndon area which includes food, gift cards, and PPE, all provided by Cornerstones. The seniors have been very appreciative of this additional assist during a challenging time and are always happy to hear from our volunteers. More importantly, this initiative has ensured that this group stays safe and healthy during the ongoing crisis.

The community can help by making a donation to Cornerstones or during upcoming CORE events. For additional information, please contact info@corefoundation.org.
