World Elder Abuse Awareness Day event

MARINETTE – The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) will host an event in honor of World Elder Abuse Awareness day on June 11 and 13. 

On Tuesday, June 11 Pit Bros. Food Truck will be outside the ADRC from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. After ordering lunch ADRC will have a prize for individuals who come to spin the wheel. 

On Thursday, June 13 Ti-Shep’s Food Truck will be outside the ADRC from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. with a free dessert after purchase of a meal. 

Literature will be available in the ADRC with a banner on the HHSD lawn all week surrounded by pinwheels. The pinwheels represent the number of elder abuse neglect (EAN) referrals last year. 

The ADRC would like to encourage everyone to take time to connect with a senior, whether it be an elderly neighbor, a senior church member currently in the hospital, an elderly family member living in an adult family home, assisted living facility or nursing home. Any effort can make a powerful impact on the lives of elders. 

Attendants are encouraged to wear purple to show support during the event.
