SUPERVISOR WILMA CHAN DONATES $100,000 TO HELP FEED OAKLAND'S MOST VULNERABLE SENIORS(371KB)
The demand for home-delivered meals by seniors continues to grow at an alarming rate. In just the last nine months, the number of Oakland seniors requesting assistance has nearly doubled, from 650 to 1,200. Demand is also increasing in central Alameda County as the senior population continues to grow.
My donation will allow SOS/Meals on Wheels to continue providing hot, nutritious meals to more than a thousand homebound senior citizens in Oakland.
My support for SOS/Meals on Wheels is an extension of my ALL IN TO END HUNGER 2020 campaign, which aims to ensure that everyone in Alameda County has access to nutritious food and knows where their next meal is coming from (www.acgov.org/allin).

San Lorenzo affordable senior housing project breaks ground
Mercy Housing California's affordable senior apartments in "downtown" San Lorenzo will provide much-needed housing while promoting better health, quality of life, and independence for the area's growing senior population. The senior housing is part of a larger effort to help revitalize the community. Nearly $15 million of the funding for this $26 million project comes from redevelopment money that I helped to preserve prior to the loss of redevelopment funding in 2012. An additional $90 million dollars I helped save in 2012 is funding expansion of the San Lorenzo Library and the Hesperian Boulevard Streetscape project, which begins this fall.
