This celebration of giving includes more than 100 communities across the country coming together with the goal of reaching millions of donors to raise over $100 million nationwide for nonprofits. “Seniors First is proud to again be a part of the BIG Day of Giving,” said Gilbert. “Representatives of Seniors First, alongside many other outstanding organizations, will be rallying support for the crucial work of local nonprofits.”

Seniors First has been serving Placer County, CA, since 1971. It does not charge seniors or their families for many of the services provided, but rather chooses to seek funding through donations, grants and fundraisers. It also relies on community support and utilizes volunteer efforts to provide transportation to daily errands or medical appointments, information and assistance, home modifications, safety repairs, friendly visitors and housing-placement assistance.
