Benevilla will be participating in the 8th-annual GIVE65 Event, presented by Home Instead Charities, the first and only online-fundraising platform exclusively devoted to supporting nonprofits in raising money for programs and services helping aging adults live with independence and dignity. This year, the 65-hour event kicks off Tuesday, July 11th at 6:00 AM and runs until 11:00 PM July 13th. Benevilla is eligible for up to $5,000 in matching grants, and additional financial rewards are available to the agency raising the most money or which has the most unique donors. Matching grants are determined on a first donate / first matched basis, so please consider donating the morning of July 11th giving Benevilla the best chance at financial awards.
“Through the GIVE65 Event, Benevilla is raising funds for their Home Services program helping West Valley older adults and adults with disabilities remain independent and living in their homes for as long as possible” said Jennifer Kehren, Director of the Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Department. “This program is vital to our community since it provides free volunteer assisted services such as grocery shopping, assisted transportation to medical appointments, wellness checks, phone pals and more.”
Why is the Benevilla home services program and older adult assistance so vital to the community? The senior population continues to grow at an unprecedented pace. These services not only foster independence, but they also enhance health and well-being, and help alleviate caregiver burden. This prevents institutionalization, fosters social cohesion, and promotes equity. By investing in these services, Benevilla helps create a more age-friendly environment where older adults can thrive and contribute meaningfully.
