INTERGENERATIONAL HOLIDAY BALL

Approximately 247 Seniors and 68 Young Adults throughout Monroe County joined together to celebrate the holiday season on Wednesday, December 5th at the Burgundy Basin Inn. This annual event provides the opportunity for the two generations to come together with entertainment, a healthy meal, socialization and the opportunity to learn from one another.

COATS FOR SENIORS: OPEN YOUR HEARTS & OPEN YOUR CLOSETS!

In an effort to make sure our older adults are safe and have what they need to fight the colder months, Monroe County, in partnership with several other community organizations, is launching our annual Coats for Seniors campaign. Coats will be collected through January 7, 2019 and then distributed throughout the community to older adults and other individuals in the community in need. This is the 15th year of the Coats for Seniors Campaign and over 10,000 coats have been collected and distributed over this time.

Please consider donating new and gently used clean coats to help our community's older adults.

* Of special note, while we will accept new and gently used clean coats of any size, we are especially in need of larger sizes.  

* If you are an older adult in need of a winter coat, please contact your area senior center and/or our offices at (585) 753-6280. In addition you are in need of a you a coat to keep you warm, we will connect you to other programs and services that may benefit you.
