“One of the Greatest Gifts you can Give is Your Time”

Mission Statement

A Community Leader and Advocate, Alliance on Aging provides services and

resources that address the challenges and opportunities for

older adults in Monterey County.

We are asking for volunteers from the community to make Father’s Day cards with fun, loving and hopeful messages that will be delivered to the facilities on Father’s Day weekend. These cards bring smiles and tears of joy and remind these special men that they have not been forgotten. Cards can be delivered to 247 Main Street, Salinas by June 12, 2023. For questions call (831)655-7564 or email
