Greencastle Walmart store manager Chris Ford (center) presents a check for a $1,500 grant to Putnam County Senior Center Director Sharon Pitcock as senior volunteer Jim Alexander (right) and Senior Center Board of Directors members Barb Black and Bill Eggers look on. The grant will help support the center's programs for the community. The Senior Center offers a free loan of medical equipment to persons who need wheelchairs, crutches, walkers and other devices, transportation to out-of-town doctors' appointments for reasonable donations, budget shopping for quality clothing and home items and attempts to assist persons with special needs both at the Center and within the community. The Center also houses the Meals on Wheels program. Additionally other programs available at the Center welcome seniors to socialize together, including card games, breakfasts and special dinners.
