Local seniors help raise money for hurricane relief

Local News

A group of local seniors are raising money for hurricane relief. 

The event was hosted by Episcopal Senior Life and ran until 2:00 on Friday at Beatrice Place on Denise Road in Greece. 

Participants made donations, and in return were treated to food, exercise classes, bingo and a lot more. 

One resident at Beatrice Place had the idea for a fundraiser right after Hurricane Harvey hit in Texas. 

“You see all this on TV and these people have nothing and I know what it’s like,” said organizer Donald Clark. “When I was a kid I didn’t have anything, so they need it.”

The money raised will be given to the Red Cross to help those impacted by recent hurricanes.
