Not Alone Breakfast Benefit

The health and safety of our Elder Friends — and all those who support them — is our number one priority.  

Due to the uncertainty surrounding community transmission of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel our annual Not Alone Breakfast fundraiser scheduled for March 19, 2020. 

The funds that would have been raised at this event are needed now more than ever to address social isolation among older adults. The precautions necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are compounding elder isolation, leaving thousands more without meaningful social contact for unknown periods of time. 

I urgently need you to take action right now.

This event was a critical funding source that supports our programs year round. Your pledge, made through the link below, provides us with the stable financial support needed to continue our essential work and face this new challenge head-on. 

I ask you to pause for a moment and think about how frightening it must be for an elder living alone with little contact with another human being for weeks at a time, without even a warm voice on the phone. Your pledge today can help us reach our current elders and beyond, providing needed companionship and reassurance.  

Please scan the QRC or use the red button below so together we can meet the new challenges of leaving no elders alone during this time of national emergency. 


(Love is the main ingredient!)
