Carroll Catholic student council dedicates collection to senior programs at CIEDC          Send a link to a friend

[NOV. 10, 2005]  Student council members at Carroll Catholic School in Lincoln celebrated a "Respect for Life" Mass during the month of October. Their focus was on the elderly, so they dedicated a collection from the Mass to the senior programs at the Central Illinois Executive Development Corp. 

Pictured is the CIEDC executive director, Angela Stoltzenburg, receiving the donation from members of the student council.

Over $110 was raised for the CIEDC senior programs. The agency provides senior transportation services to anyone 60 years or older. Senior transportation is a vital service that transports the elderly to doctor appointments and other necessary trips. The senior nutrition program provides meals to the elderly and disabled for a minimal cost. The agency also has a homemaking program that provides individual care for seniors, including meal preparation and housecleaning.

"Fundraising is very important to CIEDC senior programs," said Angie Jenkins, director of the programs. "Although we do receive federal and state funding, CIEDC must raise approximately $30,000 each year to maintain our current level of services."
