November 27: It’s #GivingTuesday!

It’s #Giving Tuesday!

This Holiday Season give the gift of dignity, choice and independence.

The Hollywood Senior Center has made a positive difference in the lives of thousands of older adults this year–today, on #GivingTuesday, we need your support to continue this important work in coming years.

Research shows that successful aging is more likely when individuals are actively engaged in life.  The Hollywood Senior Center continues to be one of the most accessible, friendly and inexpensive places that offer programs and services that promote active engagement and enjoyment of life by older adults.

Hollywood Senior Center: By the Numbers
Thus far in 2018 we’ve provided:

  • 2,769 care coordination hours to 193 vulnerable case-managed clients
  • 178-plus program sessions per month
  • 200-plus senior volunteers with meaningful and enriching positions
  • 40,300 pounds (more than 20 tons!) of fresh produce through our gleaning programs

Although we’re celebrating the Center’s growth and accomplishments this last year, the economic climate continues to be a challenging one.  In addition to unplanned facility repair expenses resulting from water damage, County and State funding has decreased by 35% despite a projected 33% growth in the number of low-income older adults needing services in the  community.

Here’s how you can help today!

Renew (or start!) Your Membership Today
The need for our services grows each year. Today, we’re asking everyone to renew and send in their Annual Registration Fee of $20 and, if possible, please include an additional amount. One hundred percent of your donation goes directly to services for older adults.

Make it Easier!
Breaking your gift into smaller monthly increments through a monthly donation is a wonderful way to increase the amount and impact of your contribution.
