We are delighted to report that we raised $9,311 from 58 donors during the #GivingTuesday campaign. Saying thank you in our picture are a few of the members of our Board of Directors Development Committee, with a photo of Sid, our #PlymouthLobsterCrawl creation, located at the Spire Center in Plymouth.

OCES recently participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

OCES raised money for our Emergency Funds program. The Emergency Funds program helps meet the needs of at-risk low income older adults and individuals with disabilities who are in a crisis or emergency circumstance that threatens either their health and/or living situation. All too frequently, these individuals encounter problems that can jeopardize their ability to maintain independence, dignity and well-being.

We are grateful for your support, and remind our followers that it’s never too late to donate. Click the “DONATE” button to be connected with our secure online site, or mail a check directly to OCES at 144 Main Street, Brockton, MA 02301
