“There are many worthy causes and one is not better than the other. But we do notice more and more an emphasis on collaboration and we like the idea of giving to one cause that benefits five programs.” – Bank of Ann Arbor

"Given the important senior programs in our community that benefit from Big Hearts for Seniors, I look forward to being one of this year's Faculty Champions. For many of my patients in Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County, these programs provide services that impact their daily lives in ways both big and small."

"As a "young old," I recognize the immeasurable benefits of programming that engages the mind, feeds the body and spirit, and provides stability. The senior programs supported by Big Hearts for Seniors provide those things and so much more."
