We are always being asked the best way that people can help us serve the seniors of Douglas County. One, of course is to volunteer, but the main thing that people can do is to donate towards our programming and services. We are funded in part by the Douglas County Mill Levy, The Older American’s Act through Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging, and Kansas Department of Transportation. The rest of our income comes from private donations from people like you, who appreciate what we do for the older residents of Douglas County with our programming and services. With the demand for our services increasing, your ongoing gift will help us continue to provide services that older residents want and need, well into the future.
Please consider making a tax deductible donation today, either online through Douglas County Community Foundation, or by sending or dropping off your monetary gift at the Senior Center, 745 Vermont, Lawrence,KS 66044.
Thank you in advance.
We are sad to report that we have had one of our Senior Meals vehicles vandalized over the past week, as reported in the Lawrence Journal World and WellCommons today. We recently purchased the used Subaru Outback with funds that were raised in the Merc’s Change for our Community program and by trading in an older, less economical vehicle. The vandals threw a sandbag off of the new parking garage onto the vehicle, damaging the windshield and crashing the dashboard, leaving the vehicle unusable. Anyone who is interested in donating online toward our Senior Meals vehicle fund can make donations online through the Douglas County Community Foundation to our Douglas County Senior Services Endowment Fund. All donations are tax deductible and will be used for the designated programs. All other donations may be sent oe dropped off at DCSS, 745 Vermont, Lawrence, KS 66044.
For more information, contact Tina Roberts, Resource Development Manager.
Did you see the Lawrence Journal World today? We have many volunteers, and one special one, Mrs. Kansas United States, Kristi Bowen, is featured today! Douglas County Senior Meals provides an average of 275 meals each weekday, both home delivered and congregate dining.
