News

SARATOGA, N.Y., (NEWS10) – From 9 a.m. July 13 to 2 a.m. July 16, Care Links is participating in the sixth-annual Give65 Event, a 65-hour online giving event for charitable organizations serving aging adults. Care Links matches homebound seniors with volunteers who provide services such as friendly visiting, transportation, light housekeeping, errands, and more.

Care Link serves seniors in the Towns of Ballston (including Burnt Hills), Charlton, Clifton Park, Halfmoon, Malta, and the City of Mechanicville. Their goal this year is to raise $5,000.

“COVID-19 has really highlighted the challenges aging adults face every day. Supporting aging adults
and providing them the tools to define their own aging journey is always important, but particularly
during a global pandemic. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Care Links for the sixth-annual Give65 Event and hope our partnership inspires greater charitable giving in support of older
adults who rely on the important work of the charitable sector,” says Lenli Corbett, executive director
of Home Instead Charities.
