Contra Costa, January 23, 2013 --- Senior Helpers of Contra Costa announced this week a new 2013-14 edition of its popular Lamorinda Senior Discount Card, which entitles local seniors to discounts of between 10%-20% at select restaurants, hair salons, auto repair shops and other Lamorinda and Walnut Creek businesses.
The card is sponsored by Senior Helpers, an in-home care provider for seniors which allows the elderly to remain independent and safe in their homes. The card is free of charge to seniors. A total of 35 businesses in the Lamorinda / Walnut Creek area are participating in the program, almost 10 more than in previous years.
“Our Senior Discount cards have been immensely popular over the last several years and this year we had more merchants who wanted to participate than ever before,” says Kevin Reneau, the owner of Senior Helpers in Contra Costa and program founder. “Our goal in starting the discount card was to provide a significant discount to our seniors while also giving a boost to local businesses.
“Whether it’s 20% off a salad at a restaurant or a discount on hair styling or help with car or computer repairs, our discount card provides a genuine savings for local seniors,” says Reneau. “People have been calling every day asking when they could come by and pick up a new card.”
Local businesses which elected to register for the program see it as a great way to engage the local senior community. “We always want to be involved in our local community and this Senior Helpers discount card is a way to give back to our senior community which has supported us forever,” says Victor Ivry of Table 24 and Barbacoa Mexican Comfort Food in Orinda. “It allows us to reach out to our local seniors with significant discounts and also generate new business for our restaurants.”
Over 3,000 cards were printed and are being distributed to seniors through local senior centers, senior organizations and senior living facilities along with all participating merchants. The cards are also available at the Senior Helpers offices at 1550 Viader Drive in Moraga.
