Throughout the month of June, a total of 37 CarMax employees volunteered with MOWA. During their time in our kitchen, CarMax filled 1,250 trays of food, bagged 1,000 dinner rolls, and packed 650 meals to be delivered to homebound seniors.
In our Adult Day Health Center and Northside Senior Center, CarMax participated in baseball, Uno, trivia, dancing and bingo with 58 seniors. They also served breakfast and lunch to those seniors. We are so grateful for the time they dedicated to us in the month of June.
With 100 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day, Atlanta’s senior population is rapidly expanding and is expected to increase 65.8% by 2030. Additionally, Fulton County has the highest percentage of seniors living in poverty (12%), living alone (nearly 50%), and having difficulty leaving the home (25%) when compared to the rest of the region (Atlanta Regional Commission, 2012).
