GiveBIG Thanks & Celebrating Older American’s Month

Help Us Set Pace for the Best Year Yet!

THANK YOU!  We sincerely appreciate the generosity of our GiveBIG donors who gave from their hearts last Wednesday and raised $27,829 for aging adults and adults with disabilities in King County!

DONATE NOW FOR OLDER AMERICAN’S MONTH!

These donors allow our organization to ensure older adults have access to essential basic services so that they can lead their best lives. They say it takes a village and we are deeply honored to those who were motivated to GiveBIG.

There’s still time to donate if you did not have an opportunity to give on May 8th. We are excited to announce an expanded giving drive in honor of Older Americans’ Month for the ENTIRE MONTH of May! Nearly 60,000 aging adults and their caregivers that we support are counting on us and we cannot do this alone.

Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Day

Sound Generations and our Community Partner Sites are closed on Monday, January 21 as we pay tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is still a long road ahead to achieve his dream of equity and justice for all.

• King County’s growth between 1990-2010 have mainly been from people of color.
• By 2025, one in four older adults in our region will be age 65 or older.

Now, more than ever, aging seniors’ voices are critically needed in discussions regarding equity and inclusion.

“You may go on and live until you are 90, but you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90!…You died when you refused to stand up for right. You died when you refused to stand up for truth. You died when you refused to stand up for justice.”  – MLK, Jr., 1967
Here are several MLK events in our area:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration: lunch, cake, coffee, special presentation. centralareasrcenter.orgFriday, January 18. 1:30-3:30 pm. 

Seattle MLK Coalition: workshops, speakers, march, community meal. January 21, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Seattle Art Museum’s Art & Social Justice Tours: focus on themes of race and social justice. January 21, 12-12:30 pm.
