Senior Grants and Projects

 

  • bulletDuring the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 fiscal years, this division made a donation to Decatur Macon County Animal Foundation.  The money was then matched and exceeded by the Foundation.  Eligible seniors were able to adopt a pet from the Foundation.  The pet was spayed/neutered, chipped, had initial shots and a bag of food.  This was at no charge to the senior.
     
  • bulletDuring the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 fiscal years a grants were provided to the Fire Department to purchase emergency key boxes.  The key boxes allow emergency personnel to gain access to a senior's home without causing any damage to the property.
