[November 01, 2011]  The Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois has procured a grant in the amount of $16,760, made possible through the generosity of Robert J. Woods and Joan Jarrett Woods through the Woods Foundation. The funding received will support Community Action in making much-needed improvements to the kitchen and senior meal preparation area at the corporate office in Lincoln.

This generous grant will allow Community Action to purchase a new gas range with oven, purchase additional food transportation totes, purchase miscellaneous kitchen equipment and improve storage areas.

"We are so grateful to the Woods Foundation. Their support will help us continue to make a difference in the lives of seniors in Logan and Mason counties," said Angela Stoltzenburg, Community Action executive director.

The agency's senior nutrition program delivers five meals to seniors each week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. In addition to home-delivered meals, senior dining sites are located throughout Logan and Mason counties. Community Action senior programs are provided to seniors age 60 and over for only a suggested donation. The agency has provided these services to seniors for over 35 years.

Seniors interested in participating in the nutrition program can contact Community Action at 217-732-2159.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois is a not-for-profit agency serving the low-income and senior populations of six counties in central Illinois. For more information, visit www.capcil.org.
