Dorothy Stones, mother of our founder and CEO Kent Stones, was the inspiration for Dorothy's Power Foods. The senior center in Dorothy's home of town of Downey, Idaho, was one of the most critical places in her life. She communed with friends and exercised to old Jane Fonda VHS tapes. They are blessed to have the facility, but the building and equipment are old and need tender, loving care.
We're going to start offering support to the Downey Senior Center and expand as we reasonably can. The goal is to make sure each center building is safe, clean, and has all the proper equipment to assure that the seniors that use it have everything they need. We eventually want to network them all so not only can they be part of their local community, they can connect with other rural communities across the country.
Downey is a lovely community. Here’s some pictures from the Downey Senior Center and also the city of Downey, where my parents spent the last phase of their lives. We hope to not only serve Downey, but other rural communities as well.
