SAIL's Spirit of Giving on 27 WKOW

MADISON (WKOW) -- With the holidays right around the corner, hopefully you're getting into the spirit of giving. For one group of people in the Madison area though, they don't need the holidays as an excuse to give back; they do it all year round.Read more

A Good Night’s Sleep—Thanks to SAIL

It’s important for all of us to get a good night’s sleep and thanks to SAIL some local seniors are getting just that! For the past ten years, SAIL has provided free mattress flips to members on a quarterly basis. This week Volunteers Cletus and Deb (pictured above) flipped or turned mattresses at 8 member homes. They enjoy the friendship they’ve developed as flippers and they have fun helping our members. 


To learn more about our offerings, click on the SAIL Membership Benefits link above.

As a non-profit, SAIL relies on the generosity of those who support our commitment to meet the needs of 55+ individuals in our community. Please consider making a tax deductible gift in support of SAIL's work.

Ashton Applewhite, named 2016 Influencer of the Year by Next Avenue, is widely recognized as an expert on ageism and urges all of us to create a world of age equality by making discrimination on the basis of age as unacceptable as any other kind. Listen to an interview with Applewhite in this recent podcast shared by our friends and founders of the Retiree Rebels: Mary Helen Conroy and Carol Larson.
