Generations Concierge is incredibly proud to be a part of Mission to Assist and Provide for Seniors (MAPS Charities). This charity organization works tirelessly to help elders in need. According to a 2015 UCLA study, more than 1 in 5 seniors are part of the ‘hidden poor’. Many can’t afford basic needs, yet are ineligible for government assistance.
MAPS Charities works to stop this gap by raising funds and awarding basic necessities to those who apply, including eyeglasses, food, rent, blood pressure cuffs, new windows and pest extermination, just to name a few. On Friday, we attended the annual MAPS Charities Luncheon - a fundraising effort that honors a different ambassador of the aging every year. This year’s honoree was Laura Trejo, General Manager of the Los Angeles Department of Aging who has been named by Los Angeles Magazine among the “50 Most Influential Women” and the United States Library of Congress has recognized her as a force for social change.
You can be a force for social change as well by making a donation of any size to MAPS Charities. Please click here to donate and help our local aging grandmothers, grandfathers, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons in need!
