Kizzy Scott Circle Donate To Sarah’s Fund

The Kizzy Scott Circle Ladies Group Donates To Sarah’s Fund

The ladies of Kizzy Scott Circle at Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church in Greeleyville, SC, donate to Sarah’s Fund.

The group’s namesake, Kizzy Scott, was Sarah Timmons’ grandmother. Throughout her life, Sarah was very active in her church and this group. She especially enjoyed baking her famous pound cakes for fundraisers. It would be impossible to count how many contributions Sarah made to community causes in her lifetime through her selfless act of baking. Now, that tradition continues as the ladies from Kizzy Scott Circle lovingly prepared a donation for Sarah’s Fund.

Kizzy Scott Circle gathered donations and sent their gift to the Dolly Parton My People Senior Center, which allocates Sarah’s Fund to seniors living in Sevier County, Tennessee. Their hard work and dedication to serving others is a beautiful testament to Sarah Timmons.

Meals, Care Packages And More At The Dolly Parton My People Senior Center

Meals, Care Packages And More!

The My People Center continues to serve community seniors with meals, care packages and even virtual games.

The Dolly Parton My People Center and Sarah’s Fund continue to ensure seniors are staying connected, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, through meals, care packages and more. This pandemic has taken a toll on seniors, but with efforts like this, we can provide our local seniors with necessities and fun, safe interactions. 

Monthly food packages and hygiene bags are being distributed to area seniors. In addition, more than 2,000 prepared meals are delivered monthly through the “Homebound Senior Meal Program.”

Every afternoon, virtual games bring seniors together, even when they have to stay apart. This fun, interactive solution allows seniors to be social while avoiding any adverse risks. Maintaining social interaction is important, especially for seniors, who have been largely impacted by isolation over the past year.

The meals, care packages and virtual games, along with other offerings, are made possible with support from the community. Thank you for continuing to help our local seniors.

Support Area Seniors By Donating To Sarah’s Fund on Giving Tuesday

As we all know, our senior community has been hit especially hard during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here in Sevier County, many seniors do not have relatives who live nearby which has made circumstances especially hard for many of them this year. Knowing this, we are committed to doing everything we can to love and protect our most vulnerable. By giving to Sarah’s Fund on Giving Tuesday, you have the chance to make a difference in the everyday lives of our senior citizens. Together we can give them the support they need during these uncertain times.

Sarah’s Fund

The Sarah Timmons Activities Program (Sarah’s Fund) honors the legacy of Sarah Scott Timmons by providing monthly activities and assistance for Sevier County Seniors. Sarah’s Fund was developed in partnership with S.D. Professionals’ President, Jacob Timmons, and the Sevier County Council on Aging staff at the Dolly Parton My People Senior Activity Center. Together they work to identify seniors isolated at home as well as lacking the ability to attend activities outside of their home or healthcare facility.

Through the generous support of people like you, Sarah’s Fund has donated more than $10,000 to the Dolly Parton My People Senior Activity Center, with $5,000 allocated in 2020 to assist in providing emergency meals to area seniors during the COVID-19 crisis.

Even during the pandemic, Sarah’s Fund is determined to continue the core mission, which is to support area seniors. Please consider joining us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of our seniors.
