Faced with a growing population over the age of 60, the Area Agency on Aging for Southeast Idaho is struggling to provide services with a limited budget.
 we feel if we do not fundraise with the community at this critical juncture, many of these people will go without food, ration their medications to purchase food or become critically ill and be admitted to a skilled nursing facility prematurely.
A nutritional program that delivers meals to senior citizens who are homebound is among the most well-known programs provided by the agency, but Greving said it provides many other services to people between the ages of 70 and 100.
The other programs include: caregiver support for people who care for an elderly family member or those seniors who care for a minor child; medication management; legal assistance; health screenings and exercise programs; and case management to help coordinate in-home care for those at high risk of placement in a nursing home.
The first thing one notices after stepping inside Wilkinson's rustic home is a wall of rifles and pistols used in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.
Wilkinson, who has been collecting guns since he was 6 years old, said he doesn't acquire guns he can't shoot - including his 450-pound, bronze 1877 Bulldog Gatling gun that fires up to 700 rounds a minute.
After moving to Moscow, he decided to work less - he now lives on $900 a month - allowing him to spend more time with family and friends and focus on his passions.
Aside from working 20 hours a week at Invertebrate Ecology in Moscow, Wilkinson also leads local youth groups and Boy Scout activities and is director of Adventure Learning Camps, a Moscow-based organization that provides educational opportunities for at-risk children through wilderness trips.
While on these outings, Wilkinson brings along his fur trade-era tools, guns and clothes, including a replica New Hampshire militia uniform that honors his family's East Coast roots.
After his father died, Wilkinson said he visited his Pennsylvania home and cleaned out the old barn where his family kept many historical artifacts, including photos of his ancestors, and brought them to Moscow.
