ALTON — On Saturday, May 3, Senior Services Plus will participate in an event to raise funds for services for older adults.
Volunteers will be collecting for Senior Independence Day funds, rain or shine, at Brown and Main and College and Washington avenues in Alton, and Alby Street and Humbert Road in Godfrey. Other organizations will be collecting in 17 other communities. Volunteers will be out from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Funds raised will help programs and services which enable older adults to remain independent in their homes and provide support to caregivers and services to help grandparents raising their grandchildren.
Senior Services Plus provides Meals On Wheels and Transportation services to more than 600 seniors daily in Madison and St. Clair counties. This event helps raise funds and awareness for these needed programs for seniors. Without these services, many of the seniors served would not be able to remain living independently and would need another type of assistance.
