SACRAMENTO–Today Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) honors Sonoma County’s Council on Aging as Assembly District 2’s 2019 Nonprofit of the Year.
“Every year each of us in the Assembly has the privilege of recognizing a nonprofit organization that serves and makes a difference in the lives of our constituents,” said Wood. “I’m pleased and honored to recognize Council on Aging’s leadership and their place as a respected institution in Sonoma County.”
Council on Aging enhances the quality of life for our aging community by providing services that promote the well-being and independence of seniors. Offering 16 programs, Council on Aging provides seniors with services that include social inclusion, legal advice, financial security, nutrition and beyond.
“We’re fortunate to have an organization in the district that understands the importance of supporting seniors with the dignity that they have earned and deserve,” said Wood. “Protecting and supporting our growing senior population is a priority for me and I’m very proud of the work Council on Aging does.”
“Assemblymember Wood’s commitment to seniors transcends a legislative priority,” said Marianne McBride, President and CEO of Council on Aging. “It is clear that his energy for our seniors is personal. Council on Aging appreciates having a legislator in Sacramento that constantly advocates for the work we do in Sonoma County every day.”
