Giving Tuesday 2023

Make TWICE the impact on LBFE elders’ holiday celebrations! Giving Tuesday gifts up to $5,000 have the potential to be DOUBLED thanks to a generous matching grant challenge.

Your Giving Tuesday gift of any amount makes it possible for LBFE to remind elders they are included and not alone on Christmas Day — with your help, nearly 700 elders aging without support from friends or family will receive:

  • a delicious, homecooked holiday meal
  • festive items, like a bright poinsettia and sparkling cider, to celebrate
  • a warm visit from a friendly volunteer

Thank you for your generous support to relieve isolation and loneliness for our elders at the holidays and year-round!

Our holiday celebrations continue to be adjusted to account for the well-being and concerns of our elders — among the most vulnerable to COVID. Instead of celebrating at large parties this holiday season, our elders will receive friendship, celebration, connection and joy during deliveries of homemade holiday meals and festive celebration bags, as well as warm visits, from volunteers.

In addition, LBFE will deliver a holiday gift to almost 900 elders during the month of December. This is a powerful reminder to our elders that they’re remembered and often the only present our elders can expect to receive this time of year.

We’re so grateful for all the the ways you brighten this season for our elders!
