The Center is proud to take part in this annual nationwide effort that takes place each March to ensure that our seniors are not forgotten. The goal of our campaign is to create awareness about the problem of senior hunger. We are grateful for all contributions that make our fundraisers successful. Thank you to all who participated to help us raise funds the 4,500 meals given to seniors under poverty level in OUR community, our Meals on Wheels program, activities and overall needs that allow us to help our community. 

Annual Wine & Dine Event

Our annual Wine & Dine Event has grown into a phenomenal success!  Hundreds of businesses in the community and surrounding states donate wonderful prizes for the silent and live auctions.
