BENEFITING: New York Cares
Now imagine a senior citizen home plus a handful of volunteers armed with hot glue guns and decks of cards. Building a macaroni assault tank with Ole Bessie? Sounds epic. Aw, does that 72-year-old man have a royal flush? Sucks for you. But wait, karaoke with Gramps? And mocktail parties? Looks like your day just got awesome.
Senior citizens need company, and they tend to know a thing or two about life. Our volunteers usually walk away from nursing homes feeling totally fulfilled and happy. A $20 donation to New York Cares will help ensure programs like this exist for a long time and people never have to suffer the injustice of being forgotten.
So seriously, don’t buy that venti iced half caf double caramel latte macchiato tomorrow morning - send the cash our way instead. That way, you can skip the gym and keep some old folks happy at the same time.
All donations will support New York Cares' general programming, which provides critical services to 400,000 at-risk New Yorkers each year. For information on making donations to support specific programs, please contact Jennifer.Goldschein@newyorkcares.org.
