Individual Support

By 2025, 1 in 4 adults in King County will be 65 or older, and the number living in poverty will double. Gifts from you and other generous supporters are essential in helping us keep connected with local older adults by providing them with food assistance, transportation, health and wellness programs, and assistance services. There are many ways you can donate resources to support the tens of thousands of at-risk aging adults who rely on Sound Generations’ programs and services!
