Press Release: Powell County Senior Center
100 Missouri Ave.,  PO Box 365, Deer Lodge, MT 59722  – 406-846-3939

Can you believe this weather? Spring is almost here!
This time of the year brings a lot of important items to the table, some of them being that of supporting and helping others. The Powell County Senior Center, a Non Profit 501 C would like to ask you to consider a tax free donation to the center.
Our center, unlike many others around the state, does not receive any local tax dollars. We do receive a minimal amount from federal and state monies as we are contracted with them to provide the Meal on Wheels for our local seniors in need. However, the amount we get simply does not cover the costs. Therefore, our center relies on in house meals, support, and donations from generous people like you.
Donations are needed to help with the cost of building maintenance as well as upgrades on old worn out equipment. The center has been here for quite sometime now with little to no improvements or maintenance.
Donations also help cover the cost of meals for those over 60 that are not able to pay.

We would like to ask that you consider making a tax deductible donation to the center in order to help keep us up and running. The center has gone through a lot of change lately; new staff, management, board and practices have been put in place. The centers meal count is up a considerable amount and we are enjoying serving the needs of our local seniors.

We currently serve an average of 65 meals a day, in addition to that we offer a Thursday night dinner and that alone averages 75 people.
Donations to the center will not only help the center but will also allow an advertising option for you as our donors will have their advertisements placed on a wall in the center dining room. Please see the attached donation form for further information on this.
The Powell County Senior Center and the Senior Citizens of our area thank you for your consideration in this matter.
