Kim’s Korner October 2018
October makes me think of fundraising. I’m sure that you have been seeing the wonderful stories and pictures for Dancing with the Shelby County Stars in the Shelbyville News and hearing about it on WSVX. We are selling tickets for the event and are selling Sneak Peak tickets also. The Sneak Peak is October 26th and Dancing with the Shelby County Stars is November 10th. This is Shelby Senior Services” biggest fundraiser. It is an exciting time and lots of fun and entertainment and overall a great evening.
Many of you may not know that Shelby Senior Services has to come up with about 50% of our operating costs through fundraising. We try to take advantage of the many grant opportunities that we can, but there is still money that is needed. Most grants cannot be used for operating costs for the agency, so we rely on many different sources of money such as SCUFFY, CICOA, INDOT, IAAAA, MHP, the Blue River Community Foundation, the city and county and many independent people who donate to Shelby Senior Services to help fund our many programs that we offer.
We also look at other fundraisers and our Annual Fund to help with the operating expenses of Shelby Senior Services. We are continually looking for new and different ways to raise money to be able to provide the services and programs that are needed in the community for people 60+. Please look for our Annual Letter coming soon. Please consider giving to Shelby Senior Services in one of these ways. We are fortunate to have the support of Shelby County behind us. If you would like to give, please stop by at 1504 S Harrison St or call 317-398-0127.
