YOUTH CITY COUNCIL DONATES TO SENIOR CENTER HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS
The Riverdale Youth City Council recently donated $1,090 to the Riverdale Senior Center. The money will be used to purchase material for humanitarian projects that the seniors are working on. The two projects currently being worked on are for Primary Children's Hospital and the Navajo Santa project. For Primary Children's Hospital they are making puppets and dolls with hospital gowns. For the Navajo Santa project they are making quilts. Last year the Senior Center donated over 50 quilts to the Navajo Santa project.
Each Monday volunteers at the Senior Center hold their "Humanitarian Mondays" to work on the projects. The donation will provide the material needed to complete the projects and work on future projects. The seniors wish to thank the Youth City Council for their generous and kind donation! The Youth City Council raised the money through fundraiser's, including a car wash, and a gift from the Stewart Foundation.
