The Center will be closed the week of June 29 - July 3 to allow for staff vacations and the July 4th holiday. See you Monday, July 6! To see all our July activities, check out our July People Plus newspaper here!

People Plus relies on fundraising events for a large part of their budget. With our annual Music in April gala and auction cancelled this year from the pandemic, funds are needed to fill the gap from the loss of proceeds from the event which normally brings in over $60,000.

People Plus is now offering outdoor exercise classes. “We are focused on what can we offer our members, with health and safety concerns upper most in our minds,” said Programming Coordinator Jill Ellis. Activities resumed at the Center in June with exercise classes outside under the trees in the parking lot, live Zoom classes online and Friday haircuts for seniors.

It is our mission at People Plus to stay connected with all our senior members and the community.

The People Plus VTN (Volunteer Transportation Network) has shifted focus to keep homebound seniors well supplied. Normally, our drivers are taking participants to doctor appointments, physical therapy, grocery stores, hair appointments and more. Now our volunteer drivers are grocery shopping and getting prescriptions for area residents and members alike!

In our new program, People Plus staff and volunteers are calling local seniors on a regular basis to have a chat! Our office coordinator called over 400 people to check in on them and see if they would like a daily phone call.
