Your Home Away From Home - Summer Appeal: Fixing up the Garden Room

Welcoming. Safe. Accessible. Fun. We strive to make the Senior Center all of these things for older adults. 

The Garden Room (the large room in the lower level of the Senior Center) is home to many popular activities, from cards and bone builders to chair yoga and bunco. We have many new, fun activity ideas in mind for this space that also take the safety of seniors to heart. However, this room has some challenges (including slip hazards and poor sound quality) that makes new activities difficult.

To overcome these challenges, we plan to install carpet and a sound system in the Garden Room. The total for these renovations is $20,000. We ask that you please consider a donation to the Garden Room to improve your home away from home.

As of July 30, 2018, the total for the Garden Room appeal was at $6,191. Thank you!

“I don’t know what I would do without the Grand Forks Senior Center.” These are words we have heard spoken many times by numerous individuals. Sometimes the people saying this are Grand Forks Senior Center (GFSC) regulars who spend a fair amount of time here participating in our activity program and socializing with other older adults at the GFSC. Other times we have heard these words spoken by family members who have utilized our services as a way to help their mom/dad/neighbor/friend as they age. We also have heard Meals on Wheels clients gratefully express this same sentiment as hot meals are delivered to their homes by friendly faces. You are supporting the people who utter these words.
