Week 5 - 5 Weeks of Giving - Excellence w/ Kay Halverson & Muriel Crisler

In today’s #5WeeksofGiving message, Kay Halverson, Exec. Dir. of the Mary Marshall Assisted Living Center and Muriel Crisler, a resident there shares their gratitude for VOACC.

OUR 2019 GOAL

Our goal is to raise $100,000 by January 3rd to provide for those in your community in need of support and cheer this Holiday season. Any amount you are able to give will go a long way. Even just $20 will ensure that a family of four can enjoy something as simple as a warm Holiday meal.

$30,149 of $100,000 raised



ABOUT

The holidays are a time of family, good food, thanksgiving and celebration. While most of us look forward to this season with great anticipation and excitement, for those living in marginalized circumstances this is often not the case. There are many in your community who are unable to provide even the most basic needs for either themselves or their loved ones. But you can make a difference.


During our 5 Weeks of Giving campaign, we highlight those most integral to our success: our clients, our supporters, and our amazing staff members. Each week, we will present stories about the work we do and the values we share across the organization. And, we ask you for your support. 

Stay up to date with the latest video and written testimonies from our leadership, staff and clients by following us on FacebookTwitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
