We learned a lot about services to the elderly in our community when John McNabola, Executive Director of the Center of Concern, visited us today. The Center of Concern has long focused on meeting the needs of seniors, whether it is a lack of social interaction, nutritious meals, affordable housing, or help to stay in their own home. This summer, they are offering a daily lunch to anyone over 60, at no charge. The hot lunch is served at the Des Plaines Public Library every week day at 11:30. The Center will also offer seniors conversation, entertainment, and some easy-going education over the course of the six month meal program.
Our club was happy to donate $200 to the Center of Concern to help support their efforts.
