Give to AgeWell Services
AgeWell Services prepares and delivers 1,600 meals each day to Seniors in Muskegon, Ottawa and Oceana Counties, but the need for our services continues to grow daily. A donation of any amount can go a long way towards helping deliver hope to seniors.
Volunteering is also a great way to give to AgeWell. It is only through the dedicated service of our volunteers that we are able to meet the needs of so many seniors in our area. An hour a week can make a huge difference!
