SIOUX CITY | Sunrise Retirement Community has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
As a nonprofit senior care community, Sunrise lives its mission to the fullest through providing benevolent care (charity care) for residents that have exhausted their personal resources. Through the years Sunrise has provided millions of dollars of benevolent care. In 2016 alone, Sunrise provided $762,470 in benevolent care and unreimbursed Medicaid and Medicare services.
This year’s #GivingTuesday falls on Nov. 28, which is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. The widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick-off the holiday shopping season. #GivingTuesday offers an opportunity to those within our community to give back to the charities they support and make an impact this holiday season.
You can support Sunrise Retirement’s Benevolent Care fund this giving season and participate in #GivingTuesday. You can visit its website www.sunriseretirement.com to make a gift.
