Your generosity supports programs and services that make independent living possible for older adults and adults living with disabilities in your neighborhood.
You helped Donald and Edith, a 90-year-old Winthrop couple, when their apartment air conditioner broke. With the couple’s tight budget and medical conditions, buying a new A/C unit was both out of reach and absolutely necessary.
We were able to provide the purchase and installation of the new air conditioner, through donations to our Elder Independence Fund. Donald and Edith are breathing easier because of you.
Similar requests for help come to our attention each week. These items– an air conditioner, a hearing aid, a new mattress– are not covered by insurance or government programs, but are critical needs for our neighbors. Thank you for answering our neighbors’ call. Online donations can be made here.
