Irvine-based Alzheimer’s O.C. has been named the Nonprofit of the Year for California State Senate District 37. The announcement was made by California Sen.John Moorlach earlier this month.

“I am delighted to bring attention and recognition to Alzheimer’s Orange County as an outstanding nonprofit organization that provides a range of free programs and valuable services for local families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia,” said Sen. Moorlach in a statement. “Particularly during the pandemic, Alzheimer’s Orange County has been a lifeline to thousands of county residents.”

The California Association of Nonprofits, in cooperation with the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector, each year spotlight one deserving nonprofit in each district, as nominated by the state assembly members and senators.

Under the leadership of Jim McAleer, CEO, Alzheimer’s O.C. provides resources to those suffering with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The organization was established in 1982 to offer support to victims of the disease as well as their caregivers. For more information: www.alzoc.org.
