Pennridge Community Center Receives New Grant


On February 22, 2017, Governor Tom Wolf announced the recipients of the 2016-17 Senior Community Center Grants which total $2 million from the Pennsylvania Lottery and will be distributed to 38 centers throughout the commonwealth.


“Senior community centers play a vital role in providing older Pennsylvanians with a safe place to gather, and they offer programs that enable them to stay healthy and remain engaged with their community,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “These grants give senior centers the resources needed to revitalize and expand the services that enrich the lives of our senior population.”


Senior community centers serve as a gateway for connecting older adults to vital community services. They have a wide variety of offerings that may include: nutritious meal programs; educational opportunities; transportation services; financial and insurance counseling; exercise programs; and social and recreational activities.


Our Center received the grant that will enable us to have a stairglide installed to the basement, a new padded floor in the basement, new carpeting in the lobby, Legacy Room, and the hallway from the lobby to the activities rooms, and new sofas in the lobby.


Once the above items are installed, we will host an Open House for the community to not only see the finished work, but to also celebrate our 10 year anniversary in our building.  That date has yet to be determined.  As the work is being done, please bear with us - it will be well worth the wait!


We thank Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging for this generous grant, as well as all those who supported our application.
