Take a Senior to Lunch 2013

"May 12, 2013 was a wonderful success for our Elder population in Bowling Green! Taking a Senior to Lunch melded right into pre-Mothers day and WKU graduation lunch outings. We had -0- calls to claim unused place-mats and therefore we hope that upwards of 3500 people were made aware of the signs of Elder Abuse and the numbers to call when they suspect or witness Elder Abuse in our community.  We were very lucky to have Kroger's on Campbell Lane participate on that prior Wednesday when they held their Senior Shopping Day. Kroger placed 1500 foldouts in shopping bags that day!" 

"I thank every participant who made this campaign such a great success and the agencies that continue to encourage awareness about Elder Abuse in our fine city!  Be Aware &  Be There...for our aging population."

Sponsoring Restaurants Receive:

Delivery of 100 or more place-mats to participating restaurants a week or so before the event (you as a participating Restaurant select the number).  These place-mats will help to raise awareness and enlighten the public about elder abuse, neglect, extortion or exploitation of any kind.

All your business info in a Public Service Announcement BEFORE the place-mats are delivered.

Your restaurant listed as a Participant for "Take a Senior to Lunch" on our Web Page with WKU's Center for Gerontology.

YOU are not giving anything away EXCEPT THE PLACE-MAT & the idea for the public to become aware of elder abuse... what it entails, and how to report it.

On Saturday, May the 11th, all you need to do is spread out the place-mats and watch as folks take an interest.

As a sponsoring restaurant, you will know that you did a great thing by enlightening your patrons about a problem that won't go away without everyone knowing what to do in the event they witness elder abuse, neglect, extortion, or exploitation of any kind.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of this worthwhile project!
