Silverton Senior Center needs your help

Dear Community Members,

The Center receives no public funding, and the negative effects of COVID forced the closure of the Center’s ReVamp store, which provided partial funding. The Center has been using its savings to meet operating expenses, but we now need additional assistance, so we are making this direct appeal to the Silverton Community.

The Center serves our community in numerous ways for its more than 600 members, and for the many visitors who use the Center. We offer programs, including art and painting classes, a knitting club, yoga, exercise classes, low-impact aerobics, and various games like bridge, pinochle and dominoes. We have a free library and a puzzle exchange. The Center also sponsors outings, rents out event gathering spaces, holds group meetings, and hosts other groups, such as Meals-on-Wheels and the Foot Clinic.

Said one member: “This place has been my second home for several years. I’m here almost every day. When my husband died in 2014 the Senior Center held a memorial service for him. I especially enjoy Wednesdays with the Knit Wits and the painting class. The Senior Center saved my life.”

A generous donor has agreed to match donations that come in through the end of this year, giving us – and you – an opportunity to double your giving. Won’t you please help our community with a kind, tax deductible donation to the Silverton Senior Center?

If you have questions, or if you would like additional information, we invite you to contact us. Thank you.

Silverton Senior Center Board 115 Westfield St., Silverton 503-873-3093 SilvertonSeniors.org
