Eastern Counties – June 27, 2021 – As the world moves into a new chapter of the pandemic, aging adults continue to be in need. As they experience isolation and loneliness daily, services supporting older adults remain critical to a healthy aging process. Carefor Eastern Counties remains committed to helping aging adults stay connected and engaged with their peers and community through its programs and services.
The Give65 Event, hosted by Home Instead Charities, provides us with an opportunity to rally our community to support older adults served by our programs. From July 12 to 15, Carefor Eastern Counties is participating in the fifth-annual event, a 65-hour online giving event exclusively for charitable organizations serving aging adults. This year, we’re raising funds for the Carefor Eastern Counties Meal Delivery Program, providing nutritious meals to over 500 seniors across the region. Gifts can be made here: www.give65.ca/carefor.
The generosity of the community helps to power the mission of Carefor Eastern Counties. To continue serving aging adults, we are asking for support during the Give65 Event. Home Instead Charities is offering matching funds, with each organization participating in the Give65 Event eligible to receive up to $5,000 in matching dollars, while funds are available.
“Give65 allows us to highlight the needs of older adults, help aging adults in our community, and raise critical dollars for the programs and services we offer to our clients,” says Jennie Stephenson, Carefor Communications & Fundraising Specialist.
The 65-hour Give65 Event begins at 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday, July 12 and concludes at 2:00 a.m. EST on July 15.
“Every individual deserves to age with independence and dignity. Through services offered by Carefor Eastern Counties, aging adults are supported and celebrated in their aging journey. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Carefor Eastern Counties for the fifth-annual Give65 Event. The charitable sector serves a critical role in supporting aging adults in need, and we thank all of those who financially support this important work,” says Lenli Corbett, executive director of Home Instead Charities.
