Independence is a key component to the health of the mind, body and spirit as we age. Once again, this holiday season, a generous donation was received by Fox Valley Older Adult Services from the Rev. Bob Dell of the Sandwich Somonauk Ministerial Association.
The ministerium was able to make this donation because of special offerings and the generous gifts of individuals.
"FVOAS is very grateful to this collaboration of area churches for their support," said a news release from the agency. "This donation will support area seniors in life-enriching programs and services that improve and enrich vital, independent living, enhance dignity and self-respect, and encourage participation in community life."
Through the generosity of both business and private donors, FVOAS, for the past 45 years, has been able to remain an important key to independence that helps seniors continue to live vital lives. Through active adult activities at the senior center, adult day service and home services, now including 24/7 private home services, FVOAS and its partner, Voluntary Action Center, assist thousands of seniors in DeKalb, Kane, Kendall and LaSalle counties.
