Join us for Giving Tuesday 12/3/19

Date: 
Dec. 3, 2019 | 12:00AM to Dec. 4, 2019 | 12:00AM

Each year on #GivingTuesday we honor the older adults in our lives, thanking them for the life and wisdom they’ve provided us.  But even though they’ve worked hard and made countless sacrifices for us, too many older adults struggle to put food on the table.  In fact, since 2000 the number of seniors struggling with hunger has doubled!  Please join us in helping vulnerable older adults in our community receive the quality nutrition they need by making a gift.  All donations on #GivingTuesday will benefit programs aimed at reducing senior hunger.

Donations will be MATCHED!

This year, donations made on December 3rd will be matched (up to $5,000) thanks to The Retirement Research Foundation.  And all of them—gifts and matches—will support programs that help older adults like Dr. Salinas.

Set up a personal #GivingTuesday fundraising page

 #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to engage friends and family in causes that mean to them.  Set up a Facebook Fundraiser and create collective impact by asking friends and family to join you on #GivingTuesday. As a bonus, Facebook matches a portion of donations made to charitable organizations on #GivingTuesday so your gift could go even further.
