When a person is struggling with ill health or the responsibility of being a caregiver, having someone reach out to lighten the load is a gift that can bring a smile, a sigh of relief, or the motivation to soldier on.
That’s why we provide expressions of kindness to people in our community. We work to identify people who need a kind gesture—and we make it a reality. In doing so, both the person helping and the person being helped are uplifted. And our community becomes a nicer place for everyone who lives here.
Silver Liming is kindness in action. Here are our current programs:
When we hear of a person in need, Silver Liming Foundation volunteers step in. We drive people to medical appointments, organize meal trains, send gifts, and so much more. Learn more >
Purcell Sisters. Help Kaity Purcell (18) as she becomes legal guardian to her two sisters after the death of their father due to COVID-19. We are seeking sponsors for each of the needs and wants of the girls listed in the attached sign-up linked here. Kaity has done an amazing job so far, and this is just one kind gesture to make life easier for her.
Support Sophie. For Sophie, a nine-year old girl in Berkeley Heights battling stage 4 neuroblastoma, Silver Liming is coordinating the collection of funds and ensuring that every donation is tax-deductible. And we continue to offer Sophie and her family kind gestures.
