The Women’s Fund awarded a grant to the Older Persons Commission in support of its Acts of Kindness Program which provides assistance for minor home repairs and chores that enable local seniors to continue living independently in their own home as long as possible. Thanks to the generosity of The Women’s Fund, 92 year old Anita received a wheelchair ramp. She was thrilled to be able to leave her house safely for doctor appointments and more. Thank you to The Women’s Fund for supporting the seniors in our community.
