Mission Accomplished! Gift Card Drive for LGBTQ Elders a Success

Congrats, folks. Together, we collected more than $1,000 in gift cards to be distributed to the 9 LGBTQ elders in the SAGE program that we told you about last month.

This is so wonderful – we successfully met two goals with the lovely holiday party yesterday (all of the cookies) and the gift cards news today. Kathi Boyle from Persad told me that people were virtually pressing cards into her hands at the party all afternoon so she  only had time to count them this morning.

As we’ve discussed, any additional cards received will be used for other clients in need who are connected with Persad Center.

I’m sort of at a loss. I don’t usually finish holiday projects this soon. I’m used to the last minute hustle and bustle and more hustle. What am I going to do with myself for the next two weeks?

Oh my … what a wonderful dilemma for me.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness. I hope you will stay connected with SAGE and Persad to support our community elders on a year round basis.
