7th Annual Give65 Event
As the world moves into a new chapter of the pandemic, aging adults continue to be in need. As they experience isolation and loneliness daily, services supporting older adults remain critical to a healthy aging process. Meals of Joy remains committed to serving aging adults through our programs and services, working every day to fulfill our mission.
The Give65 Event, hosted by Home Instead Charities, provides us with an opportunity to rally our community to support older adults served by our programs. From July 12 to 15, we're participating in the seventh-annual event, a 65-hour online giving event exclusively for charitable organizations serving aging adults. This year, we’re raising funds for [insert Give65 fundraising campaign details, make sure to include the impact this program/service has on the aging adults you serve]. Gifts can be made here.

Home Instead Charities is offering matching funds, with each organization participating in the Give65 Event eligible to receive up to $5,000 in matching dollars, while funds are available.
“Give65 allows us to highlight the needs of older adults, help aging adults in our community, and raise critical dollars for the programs and services we offer to our clients,” says Meals of Joy founder, Larry Cervarich.
The 65-hour Give65 Event begins at 8 a.m. CDT on Tuesday, July 12 and concludes at 11:00 p.m. MDT on July 14.

The charitable sector serves a critical role in supporting aging adults in need, and we thank all of those who financially support this important work,” says Lenli Corbett, executive director of Home Instead Charities.
