Church Members Spruce Up Grounds, Interior of Senior Center
Though it was a rainy day, World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) members came to DeKalb County’s Bruce Strret/East DeKalb Senior Center in Lithonia Aril 28 to give the venter’s grounds as spring spruce up. WMSCOG brought more than 100 volunteers from its Norcross location to help improve the look and feel of the senior center, which has been a part of the community for almost half a century.
The center is operated by the DeKalb County Office of Senior Affairs and managed by Senior Connections. Seniors are offered classes, activities, a hot lunch and wellness programs Monday through Friday.
Improvements around the front of the building included sanding and painting the center’s sign, landscaping with flowers and bushes,painting benches, and general clean up. Work was also done in the center’s interior.
Mayor Deborah Jackson came out to greet the volunteers and thank them on behalf of the people of Lithonia.
Debora Furtado, chief executive officer of Senior Connections said the WMSCOG volunteers created “a wonderful outdoor space for the Lithonia seniors to enjoy all year. We are grateful for their caring efforts.”
