Happy Holidays from the Lourie Center

Dear Lourie Center Members & Friends,

We hope you are finding peace and joy in this holiday season. Holidays can be a bittersweet time for many of us. We all have faced milestones in our lives and each milestone brings change and challenges. The Lourie Center is here to help individuals age 50 and older plan for this part of their life by providing over 70 hours a week of programmed activities specifically designed for the mature adult.

If you are a donor, member, or volunteer, the contributions you make are very important and we rely on you to help us fulfill our mission of providing opportunities for adults over 50 to remain physically fit, socially engaged, intellectually stimulated, and independent. Thanks to you, more and more people are learning that active living is not only instrumental in staying independent, but also fun, adventurous, even joyful.

Through your support of the Center, we are getting the word out that staying physically fit, socially engaged, intellectually stimulated and independent can impact some aging-related diseases by as much as 40%. The success of this mission is also dependent on the Annual Golden Fund Drive. Please help to enhance the quality of life for all the mature adults in our community by making a donation to the Lourie Center during our end-of-year giving campaign. For your convenience, you can make your donation online here. 

You may also consider the Lourie Center’s endowment through the Central Carolina Community Foundation. Your gift will provide important programming necessary to keeping older adults healthy, independent and socially engaged.

It is also possible for you to continue your support of the Lourie Center beyond your lifetime. You can create a legacy by including the Lourie Center in your will or as a secondary beneficiary on an insurance policy. To create a legacy with creative planned-giving options please call us at 779-1971.

Because of you, the Lourie Center is a model for excellence in aging and we are truly appreciative of the support you have given thus far.  Wishing you and your family a warm and safe holiday season!
