Help Me Help needs a helping hand from the community

February 7th, 2023 - Samantha Diaz, Managing Director, Signal Tribune

Twice a month, over 500 seniors in Long Beach are greeted with smiling, masked faces from volunteers bringing fresh, free, ready-to-cook groceries straight to their doorstep. The seniors, most of them from low-income areas in Long Beach, are also offered help navigating various programs they might qualify for—CalFresh, Social Security, Medi-Cal, General Relief, credit recovery, and more.
