Seniors at the Steinmetz Senior Center are starting the new year by helping the homeless. They’ve been collecting cash to buy clothing and toiletries for the less fortunate.
“Steve Barba came up with the idea to help the homeless in the winter shelters at local churches,” said Irma Ochoa, co-chair of the fundraiser.
Ochoa was pleasantly surprised by the support of the seniors.
“I wasn’t sure how the seniors would take it, but they began donating $5, $10, $20 for our project,” she explained. “We raised almost $300 in three weeks.”
