Lunch will be provided by Brookhaven Retirement Community, Brookville, Ohio.

We will also discuss ways to successfully manage stress to help us live more relaxed and fulfilling lives. There is no charge to attend. Everyone is welcome.

THE PREBLE COUNTY COUNCIL ON AGING RECEIVED A GRANT FROM REID HOSPITAL.

Reid Hospital’s Community Benefits Committee has announced the names of 15 organizations that have received $132,000 in grants to improve community health and help address prioritized health needs from a recent community health assessment.


The amount of $8500 was awarded to the Preble County Council on Aging to pay for tires for 16 vehicles that serve to transport elderly residents of Preble County to medical appointments, grocery shopping and congregate meals. This was the first grant to an organization in Preble County.


Other organizations receiving grants include:  Hope Pregnancy Center in Connersville; Birth to Five of Richmond; YMCA/Genesis; Communities in Schools; Girls Inc.;  Wayne County Minority Health Coalition; Hope House in Richmond; Thump Jumpers; Community Food Pantry; Jacy House in Richmond; The Bread Basket in Richmond; The Siloam Clinic in Richmond; Diplomas Inc. of Richmond; and Salvation Army Richmond.


PCCOA recently place magnetic placards on all vans that read: "Rolling with Reid. Partners on the Road."


 

AMERICAN RED CROSS

The Preble County Council on Aging and the American Red Cross, Dayton, Ohio, are collaborating to prepare for future emergencies in Preble County. PCCOA will provide a safe location for the American Red Cross to store emergency supplies and an emergency vehicle for Preble County. The vehicle and supplies will be stored inside the bus barn at the Preble County Senior Center at 800 East St. Clair Street, Eaton. A designated space will be provided for supplies, with shelving.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

This collaboration allows the Red Cross to continue to actively support citizens in Preble County with a local presence.  The Red Cross is very grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Council on Aging.
