n lieu of our annual Keystone Luncheon, the Seniors Foundation is partnering with the Veterans Freedom Music Festival to host a Flag Day Drive-Through event at Victory Park on Sunday, June 13, 2021. This event will be from Noon to 4:00 p.m. on the Veterans Affairs campus located at 600 S. 70 Street, Lincoln, NE and will spotlight the services of Aging Partners and celebrate our veterans.

The Seniors Foundation supports Aging Partners, Area Agency on Aging, an organization that works to ensure the independence and full life of the seniors they serve. With assistance from the Seniors Foundation, a new program called NeighborLNK was created to help keep homebound seniors (age 60 and over) healthy, connected, and independent during the physical isolation required by the pandemic, as well as to cultivate bonds of friendship which could potentially last beyond the pandemic. NeighborLNK volunteers run errands for the participants and offer companionship through phone or video calls. COVID-19 precautions are followed, and volunteers do not enter participants’ homes.
