Giving Opportunities –Donations
Financial contributions to the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas, (AAAPP) Inc. are a critical part of the support we need to continue our work in assisting needy seniors in our local communities in Pasco and Pinellas counties.
Why should I donate?
Funding cuts have affected all non-profits. But no one is more affected than those who have very little. Such seniors depend on our many programs for help.
Many of our programs have waiting lists and very tight budgets, leaving vulnerable seniors without vital services. Some examples of large waiting lists are the meals programs (Meals on Wheels/home-delivered meals and Congregate meals) with waiting lists of 700+ people; while the Homemaker programs have 1500+ persons waiting (Pasco and Pinellas counties). Some things just can’t wait.
