December 2013 marks our third full month in our new location on East Harris Avenue!
But we're not done yet! We are raising money to fund an addition to our new location that includes a full kitchen, large dining room, and food pantry collection/distribution center. You can get in on the ground floor by donating to the Bond County Senior Center Capital Campaign any time. We've supported positive aging for Bond County residents (of all ages!) since 1976 and we need your help now.
It's Your community. Support the causes you care about. Local nonprofits are the lifeblood of our community, providing many crucial services that public agencies can no longer maintain. Giving back to local nonprofit organizations is very important – whether you give through volunteer time, money, or in-kind donations - it's the right thing to do. Please do not hesitate to make a tax-deductible end-of-year donation gift this holiday season to Bond County Senior Center, Bond County Food Pantry or any local non-profit organization that touches your heart.
As you may have heard, the Center has moved to 1001 East Harris Avenue in Greenville. We are excited to get into our new home! We are starting a fundraising campaign to build an addition to the building to house the food pantry, full kitchen and a dining hall. We hope you will come see us since we've move!
Bond County Food Pantry HAS ALREADY MOVED to a new temporary location at 1445 S. State Highway 127 (on the corner of Rt. 127 and Bowman Industrial Drive) right behind Greenville Flower Shoppe. Parking is available behind the building. The pantry is open Mondays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. Donations outside of normal Pantry hours should be delivered to the Senior Center location - 1001 East Harris Avenue, Greenville.
While the Senior Center is settling in to our new location at 1001 East Harris Avenue, there will be NO interruption to the regular weekly meetings held at the Center. Talk to your meeting/group leader if you have questions about your meeting location schedule.
There will also be NO interruption to the serving of lunchtime meals Monday - Friday. Please move with us in mid-September to our new location for lunch dining.

October 31, 2013 - Senior Center Launches Capital Campaign. Plans for an expansion project were announced at a special breakfast today. Bond County Senior Center launched a campaign to raise funds for a 3,200 sq ft addition to its new location. The addition will be named for Senator Frank Watson and his wife, Susan, in honor of the work done by the couple to support the community as a whole, and the work of the Center in particular. The future addition will house a dining room, kitchen, and food pantry. When the new addition is complete, the space now used for dining will be converted for meetings and general community use. The campaign's goal is $650,000. Those interested in contributing to the campaign should contact the Center at 664-1465. CLICK HERE to read the full article from the WGEL 101.7FM Daily News.
