Dear Lourie Center Members and Friends:

Through your support of the Center’s mission, we are getting the word out that staying physically active and socially engaged can impact some aging-related diseases.

Please consider helping to sustain the Lourie Center during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

Breaking Down the Tax Provisions in the CARES Act
Donating to charities may mean a lower tax payment in 2020, thanks to the newly passed law to deal with the economic fallout from COVID-19. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) provides new tax incentives for individuals and corporations making charitable contributions. The act also allows nonprofits and other tax-exempt organizations to take advantage of certain benefit programs typically provided to businesses.  READ MORE HERE

The Lourie Center offers numerous programs on a weekly basis. We offer exercise programs like Zumba, Pilates, Yoga Tai Chi, and Qi Gong to name a few. We also operate a cardio exercise room and strength training room. In addition the Lourie Center offer educational programs and an array of social opportunities like jewelry classes, Spanish, lectures, concerts, health check-up with a Nurse, and trips. A huge issue for many older adults is transportation and that is why the Lourie Center continues to manage a community transportation program (Wheels) for older adults and individuals with disabilities. Program participants are driven to medical appointments, grocery stores, banks, etc. With transportation becoming a concern for many the Lourie Center’s Wheels program is becoming more and more essential.

Your support of the Lourie Center will enabled us to continue to develop and implement new and challenging programs. Taking the Center from good to great is our goal, and I hope you will continue to be part of our success. A meaningful gift to the Lourie Center will allow us to continue fulfilling our mission of keeping mature adults physically fit, socially engaged, intellectually stimulated and independent. Working together we can change and enhance the lifestyle of our community. Please take this opportunity to invest not only in our seniors but in yourself.

Your tax deductible donation will insure that the services of the Lourie Center will continue to be available.
