Help local senior citizens with this fundraiser
Often times, public funding for services and programs that benefit seniors is the first to receive funding cuts.
The Senior Services of Central Illinois and Home Instead Senior Care Foundation is asking for your support in their Give65 event.
The funds raised will go toward their senior transport program.
The senior transport is a team of drivers taking seniors to medical appointments, grocery shopping, hair stylist appointments, etc.
This program has provided over 13,000 rides to seniors in 2017.
There are more than 120 senior-focused non-profits across the united states taking part in this year's event.
The event begins July 10th at 7 a.m. and ends July 12th at midnight.
