How Do I Donate to Elderbridge’s Non-Profit Agency?

The story of Elderbridge is best told by the people we help. People like Margie, who learned that this financial aid is possible thanks to the generous donations of our supporters.

Margie is a 67 year old disabled woman who lives in the Elderbridge service area. Three times a week, she gets Meals on Wheels delivered to her home. One day, when the Meals on Wheels delivery person saw her, Margie looked pale and weak. Knowing that she was unable to pay for the meals and worried about her condition, the driver contacted Elderbridge.

Margie had been on Medicaid and SSI for many years after suffering a severe injury as a teenager.

With only a $780 income each month, she had fallen behind on her water and electric bills. When an Elderbridge Options Counselor spoke with her, she found out that Margie needed help, not only financially, but also with food and medical attention.

The Options Counselor found a doctor for Margie and got the money to help pay her bills through an established Elderbridge fund.

"I was excited when I got the call from Elderbridge. Having their help has been a Godsend for me.", according to Margie, "I appreciate all the help that I have received."
