Hendricks County Community Foundation Awards a Grant of $15,345 to Hendricks County Senior Services

The Hendricks County Community Foundation (HCCF) recently awarded Hendricks County Senior Services $15,345 to purchase dehumidifiers for the HVAC system. The dehumidifiers will improve the comfort of guests, especially those who exercise at the Senior Center during the summer months. The grant was made from the Raths Family Fund, a Donor Advised Fund at HCCF.

Older adults and family caregivers trust Hendricks County Senior Services to provide a variety of supportive services that help seniors maintain their independence and health. The mission of Hendricks County Senior Services is to “Empower older adults for personal independence, healthy aging, social connection, and lifelong learning in Hendricks County.”

“Hendricks County Senior Services has hundreds of visitors to the Senior Center each day. Ensuring their comfort is important, especially when we are promoting our fabulous exercise and wellness programming. Guests won’t get to see the new dehumidifiers, but we hope they feel the benefits,” said Executive Director of Hendricks County Senior Services Marina Keers. “We are incredibly grateful for donors like HCCF who invest in the agency and the Senior Center,” she said. 

“We are pleased to support the vital work of Hendricks County Senior Services with funding from our Donor Advised Funds,” said William Rhodehamel, HCCF President and CEO. “Donor Advised Funds at the Community Foundation give donors the flexibility to support a wide range of causes that are important to them, both immediate and long-term. It is a powerful way to make a lasting impact for good in your community.”
