Grand County Council on Aging thankful for community support
November 6, 2008
To the Editor:
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Grand County Council on Aging, I would like to take this opportunity to thank those members of the community who contributed to our first-ever fund drive campaign. Over 160 individuals and families contributed $9,445 to support our senior programming. We were touched by your generosity during these difficult economic times.
GCCA provides the only door-to-door transportation service for seniors and disabled citizens in Grand County. Funding continues to be a challenge, especially with the increased costs for vehicle fuel, maintenance and insurance for our transportation program. We are fortunate to receive state, county, and town funding, along with local grantor funds. We appreciate their support as well and could not function without it.
Thank you once again for supporting a very special group of people ” the senior and disabled citizens of Grand County. Your response was heartwarming!
