The Foundation for the Enhancement of Mitchell County notified Elderbridge Agency on Aging of a $5,000 grant award to be used towards the Material Aid Program. Angie Perez, staff member attended a grant awards ceremony on October 24th at the 10th Hole Bar and Grill in Riceville. Funding will benefit low to moderate-income adults with disabilities and seniors. Material aid fills gaps that cannot be met by any other means. It is the last resort. Material aid is used to buy food, pay for a co-pay for needed medication, an emergency response system, home repairs to prevent falls and more.
“The Foundation for the Enhancement of Mitchell County was established to serve and enhance the quality of life for the eight communities and unincorporated areas of Mitchell County.” On behalf of the Elderbridge Board, staff members and the consumers we serve, thank you for your generosity.
