Norfolk Senior Support Services

Norfolk Senior Support Services (Presentation by Cynthia Stuart) was selected to receive $16,800. Senior Support Services will use this donation to help fund a new handicapped accessible van to replace the one which was recently taken off the road due to safety concerns. As an added bonus, the Senior Support Services Organization will showcase 100 Women Who Care Norfolk on the exterior of the van, as a reminder to all Norfolk residents on how our group positively impacts our community. In the last 6 months alone, 2600 trips were taken by 1470 seniors, 92 disabled adults and 102 clients in wheelchairs. These trips took these folks to medical appointments, adult day programs, shopping trips, to social events, and other activities. Cynthia also highlighted that this van will be bought and serviced in Norfolk.

There were two (2) other well deserving charities represented at tonight’s meeting: 1. Norfolk Community Help Centre presented by Marilyn Antkiw and 2. Purrfect Companions presented by Angie Grice.
