Support COA's $50 for 50 Years campaign

The giving season is upon us, and #GivingTuesday kicks it off on Nov. 30. This is a very important time of year for non-profits, but especially for COA this year as we mark our 50th anniversary in December. To celebrate our 50 years of service to the community and to help us fill in gaps in care for those we serve, we are excited to announce our $50 for 50 Years donation campaign! We couldn't have been successful for the last 50 years without the support of our community, and we hope you'll consider giving $50 (or any amount) to help us continue serving a growing population.

Protect yourself and others...get a flu shot!

It may be hard to think about flu season when the COVID-19 pandemic is still very much on our minds, but it is important that everyone - especially older adults - get a flu shot this year.

 

People 65 years and older are at higher risk of developing serious complications from flu, compared with young, healthy adults. Click here to learn more.
