The Center is a non-profit organization that provides numerous services and activities that enrich and touch many lives in our community.  Through generous donations and support from members, the United Way, churches, businesses, service clubs, individuals, board members, and fundraising activities, we are able to continue to thrive and grow.  In addition, our staff and volunteers work hard to keep our organization running efficiently so we can offer recreation, socialization and nutrition to adults. 

Annual March for Meals Campaign
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 3,800 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.  
A social hour, fine dining and auctions make this a fun night of socialization and charity that contributes a substantial portion to our annual fundraising. 

 We raised $33,052 at our 2019 event!
