Disaster Relief

2013 Winter Emergency Relief Fund

More than 1,400 compassionate people contributed to our Winter Emergency Relief Fund to ensure that older Americans would be safe despite the harsh weather. Thanks to their generosity, we’ve distributed $126,000  to the following organizations that are helping struggling seniors with their heating costs in some of the hardest-hit states:

We continue to thank our donors for their generosity. These collective act of kindness can change so much: for many vulnerable seniors, assistance with their heating bills means that they had  enough money in their limited budgets to buy nutritious food, fill essential medications, or make mortgage payments to stay in their homes.
