Thanks to our Honorary Committee Donors
DMCC would like to express our deepest gratitude to the supporters who gave generously in honor of our Annual Benefit Gala this year. Though we had to cancel the event itself due to pandemic precautions, our Honorary Committee donors rose to the occasion to help DMCC meet the challenges of COVID-19, enabling us to sustain essential programs that help our senior neighbors. To date, we have raised over $110,000, representing more than a third of DMCC’s annual budget. These donations make it possible to administer the programs that stave off loneliness and keep seniors engaged in the community even as they stay physically distant.
Get your flu shot!
Did you know that approximately 80% of flu deaths occur in older adults? It’s more important than ever to get your flu vaccine this year because of the stress the pandemic is putting on the medical system at large.
DMCC has a drive-thru flu clinic scheduled for Friday, October 9 in the Del Mar Civic Center parking structure. CVS pharmacists will be there to dispense high-dose shots specialized for the 65+ population, and shots are free with Medicare and most private insurance plans. Registration is required; for more information (or to receive assistance in finding a flu clinic because you cannot make it to ours), call us at (858) 792-7565.
