City of Duarte logoAt the regular City Council meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, the Duarte Senior Center received a $10,000 donation from HumanGood, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for older adults.
The City of Duarte plans to use the $10,000 donation to purchase new furniture for the Senior Center lobby and new outdoor patio furniture.
The Duarte Senior Center is open to all residents 55 years and older and is a valuable asset to the Duarte community. The Center provides opportunities for older adults to connect with vital community resources to help them remain active, healthy, and maintain a good quality of life.
Programs and services include everything from social to physical health programs, legal assistance, and meal and nutrition programs through partnerships with the YWCA and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. In addition, the Duarte Senior Center offers active senior programming consisting of yoga, chair volleyball, dance classes, and organized sports including senior softball and pickleball.
The Senior Center also publishes a bi-monthly newsletter that lists special events exclusive to older adults in Duarte, such as themed monthly dances, holiday related events, Bingo, and opportunities to travel together through the excursion program.
“I’m honored to present this donation,” said HumanGood Representative Andrew Smith. “I commend the City for having a vibrant Senior Center and Senior Center program. We hope that with this donation the center and program will continue to be a valuable space for the City.”
“HomeGood has been a wonderful partner over the years and I’m looking forward to continuing a positive partnership,” said Recreation Supervisor Susie Perez. “We appreciate the donation and it’s really going to help enhance the facility.”
