                           History of Older Americans Month
                                When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living
                           Americans had reached their 65th birthdays. About a third of older Americans lived in
                           poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs. Interest in older Americans
                           and their concerns was growing, however. In April of 1963, President John F. Kennedy’s
                           meeting with the National Council of Senior Citizens served as a prelude to designating
                           May as “Senior Citizens Month.”
                                Thanks to President Jimmy Carter’s 1980 designation, what was once called Senior
                           Citizens Month, is now called “Older Americans Month,” and has become a tradition.
                                Historically, Older Americans Month has been a time to acknowledge the contributions
                           of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our
 country. Every President since JFK has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May asking
 that the entire nation pay tribute in some way to older persons in their communities. Older Americans Month is
 celebrated across the country through ceremonies, events, fairs and other such activities.
     East Valley Adult Resources strives to “Celebrate Older Americans” every day of the year. Offering
 Opportunities to Connect, Contribute, and Care. Get involved with the many programs and services we offer.

     Confronted with the issue of giving to a nonprofit, charity you are passionate about?

 1. It’s easier than ever to find out about the nonprofits/charities that interest you. Since     Douglas Gray, President                                Nathan Skinner • Ann Weber
     last year, thousands of nonprofits/charities have added their information to the             Jacqueline Hough Frame, Vice-President                 Tom Rhodes • Aaron Mathey

 3. Giving to a nonprofit/charity won’t cause you to gain weight or raise your cholesterol.
     The same thing can’t be said about holiday cookies. In fact it may do you good.            When Do You Give or Not Give…

 5. Giving to a nonprofit/charity doesn’t require you to fight for a parking space. The         more donors--and they’re asking more often than ever before. Donors would do well to plan

                                      a hummer. He hums to himself all day. George takes patients up to be prepared for surgery.
                                      The patients have commented on how nice it is to have a hummer. George feels his humming
                                      gives them something else to think about other than their impending surgery. George really
                                      enjoys his volunteering efforts to make others happy.
