Hill-Evans announces state grants awarded to White Rose, Crispus Attucks senior centers

YORK, May 7 – The White Rose Senior Center and Crispus Attucks Active Living Center are recipients of 2018-19 Senior Community Center grants, state Rep. Carol Hill-Evans, D-York announced today.

“This grant money will improve the quality of life for many of our seniors by enabling more seniors to participate in the centers’ programs, attract a new generation of older adults, and provide a safe and healthy environment for participants,” Hill-Evans said.

The Pennsylvania Department of Aging awarded $63,461 to White Rose Senior Center and $15,000 to Crispus Attucks Active Living Center in this year’s Senior Community Center Grants. Grant funding has been awarded to a total of 49 senior centers throughout Pennsylvania. The funding comes from the Pennsylvania Lottery.
