NACM Cares for Communities
NACM is committed to giving back to the communities that host our conferences, and in Austin we have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the elderly. The Early Career Professionals (ECPs) are sponsoring a NACM wish list drive to benefit the AGE of Central Texas, a regional non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing support and education to people all along the spectrum of growing older.
AGE’s leaders, employees, and volunteers are passionate advocates for older adults and those who care for them. They believe that aging cuts across all socioeconomic levels, touching everyone at some point in their lives. Through education, advocacy, and support, AGE empowers the community to access resources that protect and improve the quality of life for everyone along the lifetime spectrum. Many of their services are free or low-cost, and AGE has a special concern for providing services to the poor. For more information about AGE, please visit their website at www.AGEofCentralTX.org.
Whether you will join us in Austin for the Midyear Conference or not, we hope you will join NACM in this effort. Your generosity will help further the mission of AGE to educate, advocate, and support. If you won’t be joining us in Austin, or you just don’t want the added weight in your bag, you can mail your donation to:
AGE of Central Texas
Attn: Lora Hollingsworth
3710 Cedar Street
Austin, TX 78705
ECP encourages you to get your court involved! Start the AGE wish list drive in your home court to make it possible to give a generous donation on behalf of your court and NACM.
ECP looks forward to seeing you – and your items – in Austin!
