Grey Bears

Grey Bears improves the health and well-being of seniors and our community through food and meal deliveries, volunteerism, resource conservation and recycling.
Our Vision All seniors live healthy, meaningful lives. Our Core Values
  • Respect individuals
  • Trust, integrity, diversity and compassion
  • Volunteerism and community service
  • Acknowledge and respond to the challenges of aging and living with disabilities
  • Advance sustainability via reusing, repairing, repurposing and recycling
Our Work Local, vital and multifaceted, Grey Bears promotes good nutrition, activity and social connection as the perfect recipe for healthy aging. Since 1973 the Healthy Food program has delivered 110 million pounds of food to Santa Cruz County seniors, veterans, families and farmworkers. Our thrift store repurposes donated household items while reducing our collective carbon footprint. Three recycling centers divert 8,000 tons of material from landfills each year, and our composting site transforms 60 tons of food scraps into high-quality compost for sale in the thrift store. We promote activity, learning and volunteering to keep our community engaged and connected. Donate We gratefully accept donations of food, money, recycling, clothing, household items, medical supplies, books, vehicles, TVs, electronics, real estate, volunteer time, estate items and more. Grey Bears is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, FEIN #94-2298681.

At Visiting Angels, we know that it isn’t easy to make the decision to invite a caregiver into your home to provide homecare for loved ones who can no longer be safely left alone. We are committed to giving seniors the respect, dignity, and compassionate care they deserve while providing their families with the support they need to restore balance and peace of mind in their lives.
