Focused Care at Lamesa Thanks Local Businesses for their Support of Fundraiser for Lamesa Senior Citizen Center

Focused Care at Lamesa, a long term care community providing skilled nursing care and short term rehab to the town’s seniors hosted a fundraiser last week that raised $1655 for the local chapter of Meals on Wheels which is run by the Lamesa Senior Citizen Center.  A hamburger lunch for sale brought in the proceeds by attendees who were able to also participate in a raffle.

“We are so pleased the local business community came out with such a big presence to support the Lamesa Senior Citizen Center and its work for Meals on Wheels,” said Alice Gonzalez, executive director of operations for Focused Care at Lamesa. “Lamesa’s history and tight-knit community are to be celebrated and our fundraiser is a perfect example of how we come together to help each other as neighbors and friends.”

Gonzalez expressed gratitude for the participation of the following Lamesa businesses:

  • Beyond Faith Hospice
  • Angels Care Home Hospice
  • Home Hospice
  • TC’s Ponderosa
  • United Supermarket
  • Urovant Sciences Rep. Joe Konhel

The fundraiser raffle prize, a FitBit Versa 3 Watch, went to Karlene Maxwell, a local supporter from Lemesa.

Focused Care at Lamesa hosted the fundraiser to raise money for the Meals on Wheels program which benefits over 300 local senior citizens in Lamesa.  The Lamesa Senior Citizen Center creates and packages the meals and both the center and Focused Care at Lamesa help to deliver the meals directly to senior citizens.
