“Surrey Services for Seniors deeply appreciates our special partnership with Sun East Foundation, from the phenomenal volunteer engagement to the generous in-kind donations and financial support. We could not offer the wide array of services and programs we do without this remarkable commitment. We are so grateful for the Sun East Foundation’s continued support which helps to facilitate Surrey’s continuum of center-based, virtual, and in-home programs and services that support vulnerable seniors and encourage all older adults to age in place and thrive. Older adults depend on Surrey and Surrey depends on champions like the Sun East Foundation to advance our mission. The Foundation has always embodied the Surrey philosophy of “Neighbor Helping Neighbor” and serves as an inspiration to others in our Surrey community.”
