SOUTH WINDSOR COMMUNITY FOUNDATION, INC. – RAYS OF HOPE FUND
South Windsor Senior Center: The Seniors in South Windsor are a very active and involved group working through the South Windsor Human Services Department. We were fortunate enough to support two specific programs.
The Senior Advisory Council in a program that pairs senior citizens with students at the elementary schools through reading. Books that were read were donated to each classroom and one to the school library. Donors are recognized for their generosity with bookplates in each book. (Rays of Hope provided $1,500)
CARES Group provides activities for our seniors with disabilities, focusing on those that are housebound and socially disconnected. CARES meets five days a week and offers a variety of activities including music, crafts, games, reminiscence, exercise, etc. (Rays of Hope provided $500).
