Year End Tax Deductible Donation to the Council on Aging

As 2023 draws to a close, we take a moment to reflect on the meaningful impact we’ve made on the lives of seniors in our community. The Lake County Council on Aging is a lifeline for our seniors, a beacon of hope, and a testament to the strength of our community.

Over the years, your support has allowed us to continue our mission of improving the quality of life for older adults in Lake County. Every day, we witness the resilience of our seniors as they navigate through the complexities of aging, health issues, and isolation. It is our duty and privilege to be there for them, providing assistance and resources to ensure they age with dignity and grace.

The high cost of living has made it more difficult than ever for our seniors to make ends meet, creating a more critical need for our programs especially for those seniors on fixed incomes. Your support is the heart of our organization. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Council on Aging today. By supporting us, your generosity will greatly impact the lives of seniors, making their days brighter and their futures more secure.

To donate, simply tap on the “Donate Now” box below. Every dollar you contribute goes toward strengthening our commitment to the seniors of Lake County.

Thank you for standing by us, for believing in our mission, and for being a source of hope and strength for our senior citizens.

The Lake County Council on Aging Meals on Wheels program provides daily nutritious meals, companionship and critical safety checks to Lake County’s homebound seniors to combat hunger and isolation. Blizzard bags provide 2-3 days of emergency food for use when MOW is unable to deliver due to winter weather or other emergency.

The Council on Aging is teaming up with Subaru dealers and the Lake County Senior Services Coalition to collect READY-TO-EAT, non-perishable food items for emergency “Blizzard Bags”.

Shelf-stable, ready-to-eat food items will be distributed to home delivered meal seniors who are unable to stock their own emergency food pantry. Single serve containers that may be opened without a can opener are preferred.

Donation Locations: Adventure Subaru, Painesville and Ganley Subaru, Wickliffe Senior Centers: Fairport, Kirtland, Madison, Mentor, Perry, Wickliffe, Willoughby, and Willowick, Lake County Council on Aging – 8520 East Ave, Mentor
