Whole Foods Collects Cash, Food for LGBT Seniors

Holiday shoppers can make donations at the market to support 
seniors who depend on the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center.

The Whole Foods Market in West Hollywood is conducting its Grab & Give promotion that supports the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's senior services.

Shoppers can donate cash, such as their change from the check-out counter, or purchase these packaged items for seniors: breakfast or toiletry bags ($5), lunch or dinner ($10) or meals for a day ($25).

"The Grab & Give campaign is a wonderful, convenient way to help seniors who have turned to the center for support," Kathleen Sullivan, director of seniors services at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center, said in a statement. "We’re grateful to Whole Foods Market West Hollywood for giving to LGBT seniors in the spirit of the season."

So far Grab & Give has collected nearly $2,500 worth of food for seniors.

According to its website, the center's senior services include more than 80 activities and social events each month, case management to help with medical, housing and transportation issues and training for care providers.
