#Giving Tuesday Update
Members of the Development Committee say “Thank You” to everyone who donated to this year’s #GivingTuesday Campaign to help OCES keep our consumers #SafeAndWarm.
Pictured here, from left to right, with the red scarves that symbolized our 2017 campaign, are Paula Schlosser, Esq, West Bridgewater; Janice Fitzgerald, Director, Brockton COA; Gene Mazella, Director, Avon COA; and Wendy Adams, Outreach Coordinator, West Bridgewater COA.
This year we raised $7,714, a net increase of $312 over last year’s total. We are grateful to everyone who donated so generously to our campaign.
We are especially thankful to our employees, whose $1,135 in donations earned us a full $1,000 match from a private family foundation. Remember, even though #GivingTuesday is over, you can donate any time during the year to our Emergency Funds!
MOVING HEELS FOR MEALS ON WHEELS 5K FUNDRAISER
APRIL 29, 2018 – Call for Sponsors
Did you know that as part of our Nutrition Program, OCES delivers 1,600 meals a day with the help of 450 volunteers?
For many of our most vulnerable older adults and individuals with disabilities, the delivery is not only a delicious meal, it is often the only social contact of the day. OCES is committed to this vital program that receives limited federal funding. We could use a little help with “Meals on Wheels” and so we are reaching out to you.
If you or your organization would like to be a sponsor of our event, or make a donation to support this vital program, click here for more details. Or, feel free to contact Chris McLaren at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lynn Smith at email@example.com.
