Answers for Elders’ 12 Days of Goodness kicks off at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 12, for 12 days at the Kent Senior Activity Center, raising awareness that, according to numerous studies, 60 percent of seniors are without regular visitors.

In its fifth year, the program is supported by the Seattle Seahawks, the NFL Alumni Association and the NFL Legends Community. It features 12 days of events and this year will likely feature its largest group of football legends to date, who will also accompany Meals on Wheels deliveries to reach isolated seniors in their homes.

The inaugural event will be at the Kent Senior Center, 600 E. Smith St. This event will feature former Seahawks Jordan Babineaux and Dennis Boyd, SuperFans and a lot of fun. The event is free, but advanced tickets are required. Call the Senior Center at 253-856-5150. There is a limit of two free tickets per person.

In addition, attendees can purchase tickets for lunch in advance for $6 (homemade meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, tossed salad, homemade bread, homemade dessert, coffee or tea). If space and supplies are available, additional lunch tickets may be purchased on Dec. 12. Lunch-serving windows open at 11:30 a.m. at the Kent Parks Deli and Café at the Senior Center.

Guests are encouraged to wear Blue Friday gear to the formal kickoff ceremony with door prizes and more.

The corporate sponsor for the kickoff event is LeisureCare, whose local facility Madrona Park Retirement Community, selected the Kent Senior Activity Center to host this exclusive event.
