May 5th is Golden Cross Sunday, a time to recognize how we can help our less fortunate elders in United Methodist assisted living and health care centers, including Aldersbridge Communities (formerly United Methodist Elder Care) here in Rhode Island. Your gift will help needy Aldersbridge residents with rent, services, meal supplements, medical and rehabilitative devices, therapeutic interventions, even social hours and special celebrations. Aldersbridge is a non-profit operating four facilities: independent and assisted living at Winslow Gardens and skilled nursing and rehabilitation at Linn Health and Rehab, both in East Providence, and assisted living at Arbor Hill in Providence and St. Germain Manor in Woonsocket.
There will be envelopes in the pews on May 5th for your check (payable to “Aldersbridge Communities”) or cash donation. You can also give directly through the Aldersbridge website (aldersbridge.org, selecting Golden Cross as your giving preference so we can track your donation), or use the Shepherd of the Valley Give Now web page or mobile app.
