OKEECHOBEE -- On Friday, Feb. 26, representatives of the Okeechobee Yatchette Club presented a generous donation check in the amount of $1,000 to Okeechobee Senior Services at the Young at Heart Center of Okeechobee. These funds will be utilized to assist seniors in the community over the age of 60 with needs that are not provided for through the grant funded programs administered by Senior Services.
Over the years, the Yatchette Club has provided many items to help seniors in our community such as canned and boxed food goods, small appliances and fans. At Christmas time their members have prepared and provided large, holiday gift bags filled with things to brighten the holidays for our seniors.
Senior Services would like to thank the Yatchette Club members for their generosity and for their concern for seniors.
For information about the services provided by Senior Services, please call 863-462-5180 and ask to speak to a case manager. Our offices and the Young at Heart Center remain closed to the public due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
