There is something for everyone centered around socialization, recreation and nutrition. There are a wide array of activities including billiards, bingo, cards (pinochle, hand and foot, bridge, and whist), computer classes, crafts, dominos, exercise classes with Judi O’Connell every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a fitness center featuring a NuStep, line dancing, quilting, scrapbooking, table tennis, Wii bowling, and so much more. The Center is always looking for ways to expand its offerings to meet the growing needs of the community. It costs just $35 a year to be a member, which gives you the opportunity to participate in all of the activities. There are a number of dances, travel opportunities to casinos, dinner theatres and more. As a way to reach out to everyone in the community, including families, The Center hosts a number of evening events each month. There is an all you can eat pancake and French toast feed on the second Wednesday of the month, a Dinner and movie on the third Wednesday and the legendary Rib night on the fourth Wednesday of the month. There are year-around noon time holiday celebrations like the upcoming Halloween meal and parade, Veterans program and Christmas party with all members receiving a gift thanks to the generosity of many local businesses. Each Center member receives a monthly 24-page newsletter keeping them informed of all the activities going on at the facility. The Center provides many free services. Some of the services are offered to everyone, some to low-income individuals and others to Seniors only. Each year the amazing well-trained tax volunteers file over 300 individual/family tax forms at no charge. Also very well-trained SHIINE volunteers assist 700+ individuals thru the tricky Medicare Part D paperwork buffering them from much frustration. This past year the free service saved Yankton county seniors $333,983 in healthcare and pharmaceutical costs. For low income Senior’s there is a commodities program, in which over 2,000 boxes, over 57,000 lbs of supplemental food valued at over $80,000 are distributed. There is a monthly pet food assistance program for the low income. Research shows that taking care of something, a pet, adds years to one’s life. The free services at The Center are largely delivered and coordinated by volunteers. The organization is strong because of its’ members and volunteers. The Center Nutrition program serves between 45,00050,000 hot home-cooked nutritious meals thru on- site dining, their partnership with HyVee and the Meals on Wheels program. Thanks to the partnership with area churches, businesses and dedicated volunteers 15,000 to 17,000 meals a year are delivered to those who are homebound, come rain or shine. Over 5,500 meals are distributed at no cost to those who are well below the poverty level. Nationwide the Meals on Wheels program saves our government and taxpayers millions of dollars in long term care costs, while keeping Seniors independent in the comfort of their own home. The HyVee partnership provides Seniors with affordable meals for breakfast, in the evening, weekends and holidays. All meals at The Center typically provide meat, starch, vegetable, fruit and/or dessert, bread/butter, milk and coffee and are open to the public. If you are over 60 years old and dine at The Center, at HyVee or receive Meals on Wheels, the recommended donation for a meal is only $3.75. If you are under 60 years old you can come to The Center at 900 Whiting Drive for lunch and only pay $6.50. The Center offers homecooked meals Monday thru Friday from 11:30AM-12:30PM each day. Please call 665-1055 to make a meal reservation. In order to sustain The Center’s many offerings from serving over 47,000 meals a year, offering numerous recreational and social activities and special programs, delivering free services to those who are low income, it is essential to raise the dollars needed to continue their mission. The organization receives funding from the generosity of businesses, individuals, churches, service clubs, schools, the United Way, city and county of Yankton, and some state and federal funding for the meal program. In addition, The Center hosts an annual Wine and Dine event and Rockathon in support of the March for Meals campaign which provides low income Seniors with over 4,500 free meals. The area school students also launch coin drives in support of the Meals on Wheels program. The goal of the fundraising campaign is two-fold, to raise the dollars needed to fund the Meals on Wheels and Nutrition operation, and to also create community awareness about the seriousness of Senior Poverty and Hunger. The radio stations WNAX, KYNT, KVHT, the Press and Dakotan and Missouri Valley Shopper have supported The Center in resonating the need for assistance and involvement. If you want to get involved at The Center, you can JOIN, VOLUNTEER and/or DONATE. The Center can and will enrich your life as a member or volunteer and makes the commitment to be good stewards of donated financial resources. The organization boasts of a balanced budget for the past 7 years, trimming the fat and eliminating waste. The administrative team and board of directors encourages all to donate to the United Way, as they are one of the many organizations who benefit.
