AOASCC: The Great Give 2021

Starting tomorrow at 8 a.m., for 36 hours your donation is stretched when you give through the Great Give! Make a Difference!
Here is one way your donation to AOASCC can make a difference.   Transportation remains the primary issue of concern for older adults. Medical Transportation is one of the greatest needs, and, while there are options, barriers such as cost, smartphone apps, and even getting into a stranger’s car, can all prove overwhelming. This past year, we added a transportation program pairing caring and trained chaperones with older adults to assist them to and from medical appointments. Older adults need transportation services that meet their specific needs. YOUR DONATION can help us expand this program and create new transportation options.
With YOUR Donation… Together we will make a difference helping individuals remain safely at home, supporting caregivers & providing opportunities to stay healthy and engaged.
Through the Great Give, 8:00 a.m. May 4 to 8:00 p.m. May 5, 2021,   YOUR DONATION can be part of meeting crucial needs today, such as: Groceries and supplies delivered to the front door of an older adult at that crucial moment of need.Vital social connection for an older adult who is alone. Check-ins often become the bridge to services that keep an individual in their own home and community.  Getting to a medical appointment. For many older adults, the need is more than just a ride. That’s where a caring and trained chaperone who comes to the home and remains until the individual is back home, makes the difference.
