DayBreak Scholarship…

Dear Editor,

The DayBreak Center Devotee Scholarship Fund needs replenishing!

This scholarship fund was created to help families who care for a loved one at home with dementia, Alzheimer’s or some other type of cognitive decline. Their loved one can attend the DayBreak Center for $10 an hour and the scholarship fund helps offset this fee.

Families in need of a break may have their loved ones with us approximately 5 hours a day for three days a week. That’s $50 a day, $150 a week, and $600 a month.  Many of these families are retired, living on fixed incomes and this is simply not an option for them.  Some attend just one or two days a week, but even one day is a stretch for many.

How can you help?  Donate!  Spread the word!

The DayBreak Center is open on Tuesday through Thursday from approximately 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., depending on the needs of the families.  The DayBreak Center is one of the programs of the Sandpoint Area Seniors, Inc., (SASi), which is a 501(c)3 non-profit.

Your tax-deductible donations can be mailed to 820 Main St., Sandpoint, ID 83864, or drop them off in person.  You can make checks out to ”Sandpoint Area Seniors, Inc.” and write “DayBreak Center Scholarship Fund” on the memo line.  We accept credit cards, and you may set up an automated deposit into our fund.

Thank you so much for anything you can do!

Signed,

Bruce Wendle, President of the SASi Board of Directors
