make a giftGiving Tuesday

On December 3, 2019, take a moment and consider making a gift to the Southern Maine Agency on Aging. Giving Tuesday is a worldwide phenomenon of giving powered by social media and collaboration—on the local level it is so much more.

For SMAA, Giving Tuesday is a becoming a way for individuals of all ages to support the work we do to help those older Mainers in the shadows, like the old guy at the thrift store looking for an affordable winter coat or the older woman in the coffee shop nursing one cup of coffee for hours because she’s lonely and her house is cold. We support the shut-ins ensuring that they are not shut out by visiting them and delivering a healthy meal through our Meals on Wheels program. We help your coworkers who are juggling work, children and aging parents. We help people with dementia find a place and support at the Sam L. Cohen Center. We also offer their caregivers support in managing the burden of caring for someone who no longer remember their names. We might even be able to help you too.

And while donations are critical in helping us sustain our programs, Giving Tuesday is also about volunteering. So whether you can give a donation or become a SMAA volunteer, visit our website to learn more! Thank you.
