Support McHenry County seniors on Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday is Dec. 1 and the Senior Care Volunteer Network is asking for your support. The seniors of McHenry County are counting on you!
With less opportunities to fundraise this year, the Senior Care Volunteer Network asks you now, more than ever, to show your support for its programs so that no senior wakes up Christmas morning, or any other, wondering if they will be able to remain independent.
If you consider donating $100, it will provide a senior 20 rides to the grocery store or food pantry; $250 will provide a senior 50 rides to their doctor appointment; $500 will provide 10 seniors a visit from a dedicated volunteer and new friend; or a $1,000 will provide 1 senior rides to and from dialysis for one full year.
Or you can give a custom amount.
Since 1998, the nonprofit program has served all seniors, age 60 and older, who live in McHenry County or Sun City Huntley. Its mission is to help seniors maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life by remaining in their own homes or the home of a loved one for as long as possible.
Volunteers help achieve this mission by providing services such as transportation to life critical, life-sustaining as well as life-enriching destinations, friendly visits, minor home repairs, yard work, and shopping all at absolutely no charge to the senior.
In the last fiscal year, volunteers drove 161,003 miles and completed more than 9,200 rides. The nonprofit also served more than 2,200 seniors.
