Support aging adults at a 65-hour online giving event

Eastern Counties – June 27, 2021 – As the world enters a new chapter in the pandemic, aging adults continue to be in need. As they experience daily isolation and loneliness, support services for the elderly remain essential 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 Replace Charities, provides us with an opportunity to rally our community to support the seniors served by our programs. From July 12-15, Carefor Eastern Counties is participating in the fifth annual event, a 65-hour online giving event exclusively for charities serving aging adults. This year we are raising funds for the Carefor Eastern Counties Meal Delivery Program, which provides nutritious meals to over 500 seniors in the region. Gifts can be made here: www.give65.ca/carefor.

The generosity of the community helps fuel the mission of Carefor Eastern Counties. To continue serving aging adults, we are asking for support at the Give65 event. Home Replace Charities is offering matching funds, with each organization participating in the Give65 event being eligible to receive up to $5,000 in matching dollars, as long as funds are available.

“Give65 allows us to highlight the needs of seniors, help aging adults in our community, and raise critical funds for the programs and services we provide to our customers,” says Jennie Stephenson, Communications Specialist and fundraising at Carefor.

The 65-hour Give65 event begins at 9:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday, July 12 and ends at 2:00 a.m. EST on July 15.

“Every individual deserves to age with independence and dignity. Through the services offered by Carefor Eastern Counties, aging adults are supported and celebrated on their journey of aging. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Carefor Eastern Counties for the fifth annual Give65 event. The charitable sector plays a vital role in supporting aging adults in need, and we thank everyone who financially supports this important work,” said Lenli Corbett, Executive Director of Home Replace Charities.
