Mums for Memory(TM) Fundraiser
Aging Outreach Services is a proud community partner of the 2020 Mums for Memory™ fundraiser event. We invite the community to join us and support the mission of the AOS and Friends Care Board of Directors. Now, more than ever amid the Covid-19 Pandemic individuals with dementia and their caregivers need our support.
Helping is easy. AOS & Friends Care offers sponsorship opportunities and accepts individual donations. Each $25 donation comes with a beautiful purple mum. Mums may be dedicated “in honor” or “in memory” of someone that has experienced dementia, a caregiver or a front-line worker, caring for those with dementia.
The fundraiser event will look a little different this year. Gulley’s Garden Center will provide the beautiful purple mums. Mums may be picked up on October 8 at Aging Outreach Services located at 676 NW Broad Street in Southern Pines. Curbside pickup will be available between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. Mums may also be delivered or donated to a local care facility.
The need for funds and community support is year-round. Support groups have been unable to meet in person and respite care options have become very limited. AOS & Friends Care has seen an increase in the number of people who prefer to remain at home but require assistance to do so safely.
Your donation allows AOS & Friends Care to provide a variety of free services to the community including direct care grants, personalized music players, robo companion pets, resources, and education. During the past five years, AOS & Friends Care has been honored to give to those in our immediate community. The grants provided have been a valuable resource for many.
