Griswold Home Care of New Haven and Middlesex County announced that it will donate $35,000 to local nonprofits as a matching sponsor of the 11th annual online giving event, The Great Give, taking place May 5-6. The funds raised will be used to support nonprofits facing a lack of funding, resources, and volunteers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Created in 2010 by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, The Great Give is a 36-hour online fundraiser that raises money for nonprofits serving Greater New Haven. As a matching sponsor of this year’s event, Griswold Home Care has committed to matching $35,000 in donations to 12 senior-focused organizations that meet the needs of the community’s elderly residents, including:

  • Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut
  • Christian Community Action
  • Davenport Residence
  • Gaylord Hospital
  • Griffin Hospital
  • Guilford Interfaith Ministries
  • HomeHaven
  • Mary Wade Home
  • Milford Council on Aging
  • Orchard House
  • Partnerships Center for Adult Day Care
  • The Connecticut Hospice

“During such uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to lend a hand to local nonprofits serving the growing number of people in need – especially seniors,” said Lesley Mills, director of Griswold Home Care of New Haven and Middlesex County. “We are proud to participate in this inspirational event and give back to the organizations helping our neighbors live happy, healthy lives at home.”
