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:

Make a gift to Sound Generations!

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.
