Twin Falls Senior Center gets a little boost

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The Twin Falls Senior Center was given a little bit of a boost when hundreds of people came to a breakfast fundraiser.

Each meal ticket was $7 but some people paid more than that.

The fundraiser was put on by local Masonic Brothers. Some of the food was donated by Independent Me and Swensons.

The Twin Falls Senior Center has been in need of help for their meals program since the funding of all senior centers in the Magic Valley was cut back by the Office on Aging.

"They're in need," said LC Craig, an organizer of the fundraiser. "Their funding was cut almost 50 percent on meals on wheels and that's the main one that they do. Without the funding they are trying to stay alive."

The fundraiser brought in $1,71.50 for the senior center. The breakfast was so successful that at one point they had to send out for more food. Craig says they may even do another one soon.
