Supporting Community Programs

Washtenaw County is fortunate to be home to so many wonderful agencies and programs aimed at helping older adults live the lives they want. The best way to make sure that these programs stay around is to support them. Even little steps can add up! Last year Milan Seniors for Healthy Living received over $1,500 from community members using their Amazon Smile and Kroger Community Rewards links!
