On June 20th, Retire United hosted their annual volunteer event, Day of Service, where over 50 individuals came together to pack 1,200 Caregiver Support Kits and create hundreds of Cards of Encouragement!
The kits and cards will be distributed to community members who provide unpaid care to another person and will support individuals who participate in programming at our partner agencies such as Interfaith Older Adult Programs and ERAs Senior Network.
Thank you to all the volunteers who joined us for our 2017 Day of Service!
THE IMPORTANCE: Nationally, there are 44+ million caregivers who provide an estimated $470 billion of unpaid care services for individuals and family members. Locally, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County provides funding for several older adult support and independence agencies that help support caregivers in our area. The caregiver support kits that were completed on Day of Service will impact thousands of local families and caregivers by providing them with resources and items that will help simplify, organize, and support the lives of local caregivers and their care recipients.
