Thank you to our Sponsors at the Whatcom Council on Aging, who coordinated our Holiday Giving Tree this year.

From there, they'll deliver your gifts and give a little extra joy the our seniors.


Joint Luncheon: ESP & Senior Care Network

With aligned goals and missions, partnering with our counterparts at Senior Care Network in Skagit just makes sense. Often working with the same older adults, we are excited for our groups to collaborate and learn more about the available resources for older adults in our community.

You'll have an opportunity to mix n' mingle, learn more about each other's services, and establish new partnerships.
