Southington Walmart supports education programs for seniors
Southington [April 17 2007] -
The Southington Walmart store, 235 Queen St., has donated $1,500 to the Connecticut Center for Healthy Aging to support educational programs for Southington-area seniors.
The grant was awarded to the Center’s Bradley Memorial campus office at The Hospital of Central Connecticut. Funds will support the “Lunch & Learn” program, a series of educational programs covering a variety of aging-related subjects, including disease prevention and management; financial planning; independent living and other topics.
“We’re grateful for Walmart’s support of this important program, which provides valuable, practical information to seniors” says Peg Rancourt, RN, senior resource manager at the Bradley Memorial campus Connecticut Center for Healthy Aging office.
“The senior citizen population of Southington is a valuable resource for our store. We are always supportive of any program that enhances their lives and well-being,” says Beth Egliskis, community relations coordinator for the Southington Walmart.
The Connecticut Center for Healthy Aging is a resource and assessment center that helps seniors and their caregivers access services and information. With offices at The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s New Britain General and Bradley Memorial campuses, the Center helps more than 800 seniors and their families annually.
