Glenn L. Ford has always had a passion for helping senior citizens in the Clairton area.
“There are no grocery stores or banks for seniors to go to and they need help doing things,” explained Ford a 52-year-old Clairton resident who established the Tell-A-Paor Foundation and runs the daily operations.
“I thought about my mom and her friends and what they would do for other seniors in the community,” Ford said. “Before she passed away she told me to continue helping them. Clairton is the City of Prayer and we are supposed to help each other.”
That’s why he created the non-profit foundation about three years ago.
“Our goal is to make sure that no member of the senior population feels like they are a part of a forgotten generation. All seniors are capable of taking care of themselves and if they are given the right tools to do so,” he said.
