Donations to CJE for #GivingTuesday will help sustain vital programs and services for older adults in Chicago, and will make twice the difference thanks to a matching challenge grant!
CHICAGO, November 24, 2020 – CJE SeniorLife is again participating in the annual #GivingTuesday movement, a global day of generosity that will take place on December 1, 2020, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. At a time when we’re all experiencing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others. Utilizing the power of social media, #GivingTuesday emphasizes opportunities to give back to our communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while practicing physical distancing.
CJE annually serves more than 20,000 older adults and their family members in greater metropolitan Chicago through a comprehensive network of care—including life enrichment, supportive resources, healthcare, research and education. Since the onset of the pandemic, CJE has had to adjust and react rapidly to keep our clients and staff safe, serve more vulnerable older adults, and ensure that we have the necessary funding so the work of the agency can continue.
This year, #GivingTuesday donors can make a profound difference in the lives of older adults and their families and help keep the healthcare heroes in our communities safe. Donations will help provide home-delivered meals and telehealth counseling for isolated older adults, technology like tablets for our residents to connect with their families, protective gear such as N95 masks, face shields and gowns, meals to refuel our hardworking frontline staff…and so much more!
From now until December 8, RRF Foundation for Aging is generously matching up to $5,000 in donations to CJE SeniorLife's #GivingTuesday campaign, so donors can double their impact by donating to CJE for #GivingTuesday. Any contribution will go even farther to make a difference during this challenging time.
CJE is encouraging its Board, Associate Board, staff, volunteers, their friends and families and YOU to help spread the word this #GivingTuesday! Last year, generous donors helped CJE raise more than $67,500. You can help CJE reach this year’s $75,000 fundraising goal by sharing this news with your community today.
