SUPPORT DIETERT CENTER
Through Charitable Giving
“Improve the lives of Kerr County's
Founded in 1969 by engineer, inventor and
businessman Harry Dietert, the Dietert Center is the only
non-profit organization in Kerr County dedicated exclusively to
helping older people.
We are a volunteer-driven, community based organization
that provides a wide variety of professional support services and
recreational opportunities that help men and women maintain active,
independent lives in their senior years.
Your Gift to the Dietert Center can:
meals for frail, elderly shut-ins who are not able to shop or cook
Provide care coordination for those who need help with emergency response devices, or medical equipment
Provide rest and respite for families who care for loved ones with
Alzheimer’s or dementia-related disorders.
Provide information and referral services.
Support low-cost lunches in our dining room.
Support educational, creative and entertaining activities that enrich
the lives of area seniors.
Support meaningful volunteer opportunities.
Help maintain our new facility.
Help perpetuate important services for our entire senior community!
Your tax-deductible, charitable donation to the
Dietert Center touches countless lives by supporting healthy,
productive aging. Few contributions have the power to reach so many
whose need is so great.
PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE:
No one wants to think about a future that involves immobility, dependence
and helplessness. While some precautions can be taken early in life
to avoid these kinds of problems, no one is immune to the challenges
of aging. Many of today’s seniors did not expect to be confronted
with dwindling incomes, increasing medical problems and rising living
Communities must come together to protect our citizens
According to the 2000 Kerr County Census, residents
aged 60 and older make up nearly 31% of the entire population. More
than 5,500 of these folks are age 75 and older! As the only non-profit
organization dedicated solely to serving this vital – and
growing - segment of our population, your gift to the Dietert
Center will help sustain and develop the specialized services needed
by our elders of today and tomorrow.
