Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

July 17, 2018 - SCI (Senior Citizens, Inc.) recently held a special reception to honor its Summer Angels, middle school students from local schools who volunteered their time over the summer break to work with area seniors. Mayor Eddie DeLoach joined in the celebration and presented the students with a commemorative letter honoring their dedication to serving the Savannah community’s aging population.

The Summer Angels program of SCI matches middle-school aged students with seniors at various levels of need and in a variety of situations. The program helps meet the needs of seniors and provides a life-changing experience for the kids. This summer, under the supervision of Shelby Latimer, a teacher at Blessed Sacrament School, 24 students provided more than 1,000 hours of assistance.

Over the summer, students delivered meals to Meals on Wheels recipients, played games and made crafts with seniors at SCI ’s adult daytime care centers, and led exercises and games at the Port Wentworth and Liberty County Neighborhood Centers. They also cleaned all of the coolers used in the Meals On Wheels program and assisted with the organization’s annual fan giveaway program. In a nutshell, they helped carry out the mission of SCI to help people age successfully.
