OCES would like to say “Thank You” to everyone who donated to our 2018 #GivingTuesday Campaign! Your contributions help us support older adults and individuals with disabilities in our community.
This year was a great success as we raised over $8,000 for the Emergency Fund program! OCES’ Emergency Fund 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 their health and/or living situation by filling an empty fuel tank, repairing a broken furnace, or providing life-sustaining medications. Although the fund helps a significant number of people during the winter months, OCES strives to ensure that there are funds available for those in need, year-round. Emergency Funds support dozens of consumers who are faced with unforeseen emergency events every year and this number is increasing! OCES’ began their #GivingTuesday campaign initiative in 2016 and since then, the organization has generated over $31,000 for the Emergency Fund.
We are grateful to everyone who donated so generously to our campaign.
Remember, even though #GivingTuesday is over, you can donate any time during the year to our Emergency Funds!
