Make a Difference

As a nonprofit, philanthropy has always been an integral part of Valley VNA Senior Care. The original Visiting Nurse Association was formed by a group of benevolent women in 1908 and throughout its 100 year history, Valley VNA has had the support of the community through gifts of time, talent, and donations. Today, the programs of Valley VNA provide an environment where seniors, who have given so much, live with dignity and grace.

We are grateful to those who have joined the generations of giving to help us carry out our mission of providing quality choices for senior living. This continued support will ensure that Valley VNA is able to serve the community now and for generations to come.

There are many other ways for you to make a lasting gift that will sustain  Valley VNA Senior Care well into the future.

Therapeutic Garden  Spending time outside in a garden has been shown to positively affect a person’s emotions and improve their sense of well-being. Access to nature balances circadian rhythms, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, and increases absorption of Vitamin D. Gardens have been shown to be beneficial for our overall health and well-being.



Meals on Wheels for Neenah and Menasha The Meals on Wheels program provides nutritional meals to many throughout the Neenah and Menasha communities. We collaborate with the Neenah-Menasha Emergency Society to provide this serviceThe meals are purchased from ThedaCare Medical Center in Neenah and delivered by volunteers to clients in the Neenah and Menasha area, who pay a small fee for the meal.
