Pardee gives to seniors

Carmel Valley builder Pardee Homes donated $6,000 to the Senior Community Center’s future Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center in downtown San Diego.

Instead of hosting its annual holiday luncheon this year, the company used its party budget to make a donation through HomeAid. The funds were specifically meant to help make tenant improvements needed on the building that will house the future wellness center.

In December, Rancho Santa Fe residents Gary and Mary West announced their $3 million contribution toward the wellness center, to be located at Beech Street and Fourth Avenue downtown and named after them.

“After hearing Gary West speak at the December press conference about the lack of philanthropic attention for senior services, the employees understood the need to support these individuals and felt the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center is a strong place to make an impact,” Rachel Collins, director of sales for Pardee Homes, said.

The center will not only house Senior Community Centers’ existing, programs, but also be home to cutting edge programs and services designed to help seniors thrive in today’s changing environment.

In addition to assisting local seniors, the center could be a national model for the next generation of senior services.

“The community’s support is absolutely crucial to help make this project a reality, and we’re thankful that Pardee Homes is able to see and support our vision,” Paul Downey, president and CEO of Senior Community Centers, said. “This center will transform the way the public thinks about senior services and will help thousands of seniors in poverty improve their quality of life and overall well-being.”
