Michelle Lonaker, Director for the Heffernan Foundation presents Senior Services Plus Director John Becker, with a check for $2,500.

The Heffernan Foundation was created in 2006 to support Heffernan Group's dedication and commitment to social responsibility through employee philanthropy, volunteerism and education. They are dedicated to giving generously in the communities where their employees work and live. The Heffernan Foundation's Mission is to grant funding to charities that provide direct support and services to our local communities in the areas of shelter, food, education and the preservation of the environment.

On behalf of SSP Staff and our members I want to take this opportunity to thank the Heffernan Foundation for the generous grant. The grant will be used to support services here at SSP. These types of donations allow us to continue to advance SSP’s mission to develop comprehensive and coordinated services; to improve the quality of life, to foster maximum independence and dignity for all seniors. Through the generosity of organizations like this we have seen many lives change for the better, said John Becker, Executive Director for Senior Services Plus.
