BENEFITING: United Way of New York City
Did you know that hugs can come in many forms? Definition – noun or verb - 'to hold steadfastly to, cherish, to keep close to, to move alongside of, to express affection. Many days I remember how challenging it was for our family to provide physical and social care to my grandmothers and father. Medicare, Medicaid, housing, care, grants, senior benefits, pensions, activities, time, etc...There just was never enough. I want as many members of the aging community as possible to have love and live life – get a 'hug' every day. All contributions 'hugs' will go towards programming and initiatives that support non-profit and community groups that service our Aging communities. The United Way of NYC (UWNYC) successfully partners with many corporate, government and local community organizations, (e.g, DOROT, NYC Department for the Aging, Visiting Nurses Services, ElderHelpers.org, etc.) that support our Aging community. Please join me in hugging our seniors – through support for meals, health services, companionship, housing, etc. Consider your donation gift a way of expressing affection - touching the lives of many and celebrating the times with those special seniors in life. Donate to UWNYC - You just gave someone a hug.
