Senior Citizens Foundation donates $5,000

The Amherst Senior Citizens Foundation, Inc. has donated $5,000 to Amherst Senior Outreach Services, which serves frail low-income seniors in Amherst in their homes.

SOS assists persons age 60 and older who wish to maintain independent living. The agency also provides support and information for family members who are working toward that same goal.

SOS will use these funds for items such as emergency prescriptions, adaptive equipment, and minor home repairs. They will be distributed at the discretion of the SOS Coordinator Lynette Walker.

The Amherst Senior Citizens Foundation promotes the welfare of senior citizens in the Town of Amherst and helps to maintain and raise funds to support senior services and activities in our community.
