“Cheerful Giver” makes anonymous donation
August 16, 2019
Senior Resources is one of more than 40 local nonprofits who each received a $10,000 gift from the anonymous “Cheerful Giver.” The Cheerful Giver fund is managed by the Central Carolina Community Foundation and the giver’s identity remained a mystery as he or she greeted the group via Skype during the surprise presentation at CCCF’s office.
“We are so grateful for this gift, and for the spirit of selfless generosity this person inspires,” said Senior Resources Executive Director Andrew Boozer.
This generous donation is equivalent to feeding five home-bound seniors for a year; or providing meals, activities and transportation to two attendees at our wellness centers for a full year; or supporting two Foster Grandparents as they spend a school year mentoring and tutoring an at-risk student.
