After two days of getting shopping bargains – Black Friday and Cyber Monday –#GivingTuesday is a day for giving back.
Elderbridge Agency on Aging will take part in #GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. We invite you to join the movement and to get out and give to Elderbridge or one of your other favorite non-profit organizations this November 29.
Why Elderbridge Agency on Aging Needs Your Support
Did you know that in Iowa there are over 650,000 people aged 60 years or older? As baby boomers age, those numbers keep growing and so does the need for our services. A donation to Elderbridge on #GivingTuesday will let you help continue the work that Elderbridge does in your local area.
Elderbridge was established in 1974 to provide aging services to area seniors. We serve a 29 county region of Iowa from our administrative office in Mason City, and from satellite offices located in Fort Dodge, Spencer, and Carroll. Our mission is simple: To empower older Iowans and adults with disabilities to live with dignity and independence.
Elderbridge services and programs include Case Management, Elder Rights, Senior Nutrition, Unmet Needs as well as our work with LifeLong Links, Iowa’s statewide aging resource center. Elderbridge provides services either directly in consumer’s homes or at one of our regional offices. In addition, we also contract with local providers to deliver services, getting what is needed most, to those who need it the most.
Elderbridge Co-Executive Director Donell Doering, “While #GivingTuesday is a huge global fund raiser, it’s important to remember that your donation to Elderbridge stays right in our home communities to help in our mission to assist your friends, neighbors and loved ones.”
Each donor will receive a thank you letter and acknowledgement of the donation to use for tax documentation. We’ll also put the donor on the mailing list to receive a free copy of “Renaissance”, our agency newsletter.
