Senior Wellness Center Seeks Donations

The Ward 1 Senior Wellness Center has really begun to serve the area’s seniors in earnest since its open house on February 28th. With your help this program has the potential to serve several senior citizens in Ward 1. They have been able to obtain several donations in the last two months; however it is still not enough to provide for all of their needs.

There are many opportunities for the entire community to be involved and support our seniors. One easy way is through donations of needed items in new or like-new condition. Below is a list of items needed by the Ward 1 Senior Wellness Center. People can call 202-727-0338 for more information.
