Go to biddingowl.com/HOV to shop at our first online auction! All proceeds go to helping seniors with technology. We are starting out small, but items may continue to be added, so please visit us through June 17. If you have something to donate for our auction please contact our office at (408) 241-1571 and ask for Glenda.
The goal of aging in place is for a senior to remain in their home — a place of comfort and familiarity — safely for as long as possible. Countless apps, gadgets and programs are available to keep track of medications and doctor’s appointments, prepare grocery lists, read books in larger type or get help immediately in an emergency situation. At Heart of the Valley, we are motivated to help. We have numerous volunteers that can assist our seniors with installing and teaching them how to use devices that will enrich and contribute to the quality of their lives.
Because 66% of our clients live at or below the poverty line, many of these technologies can not be purchased by them. Therefore, our board treasurer thought that by offering an online auction, we might be able to raise a fund that could be dedicated to these kinds of tech expenses.
