Established in 2012, Giving Tuesday was created as a “day that encourages people to do good” in a way that is most meaningful to them. This looks different for everyone, but might include volunteering, making a charitable donation or sharing social media posts. Over the decade, Giving Tuesday has continued to grow. In a 24 hour period, more than $3.1 billion was raised across the United States in 2022 and 37 million adults participated in Giving Tuesday is some way. This is a 15% increase in charitable donations and a 6% increase in participation compared to Giving Tuesday in 2021.

What AgeWell Services is Doing for Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is on November 28, 2023. This year, AgeWell Services goal is to raise $5,000 for the Wellness Center in a single day!

Located in Tanglewood Park, there’s something for everyone at the Wellness Center. The Wellness Center provides holistic wellness opportunities for all adults, with a focus for those 55 and older, to be nourished, active, healthy and living independently. From Zumba to pinochle, wood carving to ellipticals, acrylic painting to ping pong – there’s something for everyone at the pace they need with the option to accommodate any mobility challenges. Last year, over 750 older adults participated in at least one activity at the Wellness Center. Talk about a hidden gem in the community!

An anonymous donor will generously match every dollar up to $1,000 for our Giving Tuesday campaign to raise $5,000 for the Wellness Center. Funds raised will be used to purchase critical items for the Wellness Center to continue to improve classes and activities –

  • 10 exercise chairs
  • One dumbbell weight rack
  • Four sets of 8-, 9- and 10- pounds weights each
  • Mobile whiteboard
  • Two years of Amazon music subscription
  • Three tablets with two years of security management software
