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.

DONATE NOW FOR OLDER AMERICAN’S MONTH!

GiveBIG 4 Seniors! Mark your Calendars for Early Giving starting 4/23!

Aging gracefully is something that we all want to achieve.


We all deserve a just society where aging adults and those who care about them can lead their best lives. Now is YOUR CHANCE to give back to someone who has given so much to their community, and ensure that they have the same experience you would hope for yourself.

Contact us today if you have the “drive” to help others! 206.748.7588 or email dianas@soundgenerations.org

Take your kindness and compassion to the road! Volunteer drivers are NEEDED for Sound Generations’ Volunteer Transportation Program.

Using their own vehicles, volunteer drivers help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to necessary medical appointments. Clients appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind.

Unfortunately, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the demand for transportation from vulnerable seniors.

Please contact us today if you have the “drive” to help others, a clean driving record, and some daytime availability:
