Ways to financially support the Senior Center without writing a check
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. The Phoenixville Area Senior Center is listed as Senior Adult Activity Center of the Phoenixville Area. Please consider choosing us as your charity of choice, and shop Amazon Smile to help the Center as you make your purchases. As you know, every little bit helps!
Redners Register Tape – The Senior Center collects and submits Redner’s Grocery Register tapes for a percentage of what you purchase. If you shop Redners, please consider dropping off your receipts to the Senior Center. We will take care of the rest.
Clothing Collection – In the far corner of our parking lot, we have a collection bin for used clothing. These cloths are collected and distributed to those in need, not shredded. The Senior Centers is paid a fee per pound, amounting to over $100 a month. Clean out your closets to benefit the Senior Center and we both win!
Volunteer – We always need help to prepare and serve meals, send newsletters and other mailing, manning our front desk and answering phones, organizing and leading activities, working on committees like fund development, programming or facilities. As the saying goes, Many hands make light work. Many of our volunteers are Senior helping other Seniors.
