Grants to fund senior-center improvements

Posted online

Community Foundation of the Ozarks Inc. announced grants for senior-center improvements in the area.

The nearly $30,000 in grants are funded by the Hearld Ambler Fund for Senior Centers to assist facilities affiliated with SeniorAge Area Agency on Aging, according to a news release.

The largest award of $6,450 is going to the Fair Grove Senior Center for the purchase of outdoor furniture and a shed.

Other grants announced this week are:
• $6,207 for Cassville Senior Center to buy a steamer and food processor;
• $3,982 for Kimberling Area Senior Center to buy outdoor furniture and a coffee pot;
• $3,717 for Ash Grove Sunshine Center to purchase a cooler;
• $3,106 for Cabool Senior Center to buy a mixer;
• $3,050 for Mount Vernon Senior Center to acquire a mixer;
• $2,941 for Winona Senior Center to conduct floor repairs; and
• $397 for Rogersville Area Senior Center Inc. to buy Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant door knobs and handles.

The grant cycle was supported by the Hearld and Marjorie Ambler Generous Community Fund and the Jeannette L. Musgrave Foundation, according to the release.

Ambler was the first managing partner of BKD LLP before retiring in 1986, and he helped found CFO in 1973.

“In his quiet, unassuming manner, Hearld helped so many seniors in our region and now, in retirement, continues to support the valuable work our area senior centers do to enhance the lives of their clients,” CFO President Brian Fogle said in the release.
