Time Together Scholarship Program
Donations made to the Time Together Scholarship Program provides access to the program for isolated seniors who would otherwise not be able to attend the program for financial reasons. If you would like to help give the gift of socialization to those who are most isolated in our community, please send a donation of any amount to Island Senior Resources, Time Together Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 939, Freeland, WA 98249. You can also donate online; make sure to make a note that the donation is for the Time Together Scholarship Fund. Thank you!
Be aware of a growing phone scam. The caller poses as representing social security saying that your Social Security number has been “suspended” due to suspicious activity. They ask you to call a number to clear your card. If you call they ask you for all your personal information.
If you receive a call like this, hang up and do not respond. Your Social Security number will never be suspended. Ever.
Never give out or confirm your personal information over the phone, via email or on a website.
Here is a link with a thorough explanation of this scam. Please read it!
