• $80 pays for a full structured day program of Adult Day Health.
• $50 pays for a Wrangler (youth with disability) to attend one day of the Wranglers Day Activity Program or one day of Summer Day Camp.

Together, we will celebrate our accomplishments. You may set up recurring, monthly credit card donations online, or donate $5 or more each month by mail or in person at the Senior Center.
