Chamblee, GA, May 16, 2017 – The Post Reports – Atlanta-area senior services provider Senior Connections announced recently that the Waterfall Foundation awarded the organization a $50,000 general operating grant. The grant will help defray the costs of senior meals and other critical services provided to hundreds of low-income Georgia seniors.
“We received this generous grant with the help of the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta,” said Debra Furtado, CEO of Senior Connections in a release. “In discussing the extensive need for senior services funding in the greater Atlanta area, the Community Foundation reached out to their funders and the Waterfall Foundation responded.”
After visiting Senior Connections and learning more about the critical support programs provided by Senior Connections, including Meals On Wheels and in-home care, a representative from the Waterfall Foundation recommended a general support grant as the best way to support Senior Connections’ present needs.
“Waterfall has supported our work previously and it was good to reconnect with the Foundation,” Furtado explained in the release. “I believe the on-site visit helped show how we’ve grown through the years.”
