2015 AAA Foundation Raffle Campaign
Thousands of older adults in Portage, Stark, Summit, and Wayne counties go without in-home services that keep them independent. These impaired older adults of modest means do not qualify for help from the government, which is why the Greater Akron/Canton Area Agency on Aging holds its annual raffle. The purpose of the raffle is to raise funds to assist older adults who do not qualify for assistance but still need valuable services to remain safe and independent in their own homes.
To buy your tickets, or make a separate tax deductible donation towards the cause, click
here. You can also contact Beth Leghart (330-899-5210) by phone to process payment for your tickets or make a donation towards this campaign.
