(October 23, 2017) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a grant for $2,830 to Nancy Meaders, President and CEO of the Fayette Senior Services Center on Monday, October 23, 2017. This grant provides funding to support the organization’s support for senior citizens in Fayette County through their food services department and their educational outreach programs.
The Fayette Senior Services Life Enrichment Center offers a broad scope of life-enhancing services to Fayette County residents’ age 50 and better. The services include Meals on Wheels, transportation services, homemaker services, in-home respite services, personal-care and care management services and variety of education and wellness activities.
“We are pleased to partner with the Fayette Senior Services Center organization so they can continue their important work in Fayette County,” said Mark Dose, Executive Director of the Heritage Community Foundation. “This is a special organization for our Foundation because the very first grant we provided in 2015 was to this group to help them purchase a van. They continue to offer meaningful services to the seniors in the area and these funds will help them purchase a LCD Projector and also support their food services department.”
