The seniors program here at Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House collaborated with Home Instead Foundation and is participating in the GIVE65 Event to help seniors in the Great Vancouver area.
What is GIVE65?
GIVE65 is a donation event in support of seniors and will take place between July 9th and July 11th, 2019. The GIVE65 Event is the nations first and only online giving event focussed on charitable programs and services that give seniors hope in communities throughout Canada.
We are trying raise funds for our “Neighbourhood House on the Go” project. The “Neighbourhood House” bike cart reaches isolated and marginalized older adults by bringing Neighbourhood House activities and resources to the streets and yards of older adults, creating greater accessibility to services, and building strong neighbourhood-based intergenerational relationships. The raised funds can help sustain this project through maintaining the bike, riding the bike around the neighbourhood, and facilitating events with seniors in need.
Visit GIVE65.ca and enter Frog Hollow in the search bar to find us.
Our Goal is $50,000
We have the chance to not only receive up to $5,000 in matching funds, but we are also competing for an additional $2,500 in bonus grants based on how much we raise or how many donors give.
Donations of $10 or more accepted at 5am on July 9 until 10pm on July 11. You can also pre-schedule your donation July 1-8 at GIVE65.ca.
