The most comprehensive non-profit in King County serving older adults, Sound Generations is a necessary and supportive entity to ensure seniors have access to basic necessities that improve their quality of life. Your support on #GivingTuesday and throughout the year sustains our work and helps ensure that we remain the important caring community for seniors that they need. While you’re thinking about what gifts to purchases, many seniors are worried about what their next meal will be.
Don’t believe us, read what our Meals on Wheels clients have to say:
“I don’t cook anymore and it’s hard to get to the store. I have arthritis, asthma, and diabetes which limits my ability to get food. MOW changed my life. I’m extremely grateful.“
“We have been using your services for a few years and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this service being available. I work full-time so it’s a challenge to get Mom to her appointments but this service allows me to reduce the hours I have to be away from my job. Mom really enjoys the social interaction with the drivers.“
Help us maintain vital services for older adults and launch into 2019 with the strongest possible start!
