Madden: $15K for three senior centers in 115th Legislative District

MONROE, Jan. 7 – State Rep. Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, is instrumental in getting nearly $5K grants to three senior centers in Monroe County.

The three grants are administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.

The agencies awarded the grants are:

  • The Mountain Center.
  • Jewish Resources Center of the Poconos.
  • Loder Senior Center.

“I am pleased the senior centers received this grant funding because they serve as a gateway to Monroe County’s mature population especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, connecting older adults to vital community services that assist them in staying healthy and independent,” Madden said.

Madden said in addition to providing a nutritious meal, centers offer social activities, a range of informative programs, creative arts, exercise, volunteer opportunities, community services, and other special events which are unique to individual centers.
