Centers Health Care’s Genuine Donation to Senior Wishes
Yesterday at Buffalo Center on Delaware Avenue, leaders from Centers Health Care and Buffalo Center presented a $2500 donation to an Orchard Park non-profit organization called Senior Wishes. Part of United Church Home Society (UCHS), Senior Wishes, founded in 2013, grants life enriching wishes to low income seniors and permanent residents of care facilities living in Western New York.
Senior Wishes recognizes the life long contributions seniors have given to their community and they believe that many seniors still have things they want to do, places they want to go or people they wish to see again. For many lower income seniors, having extra funds to do these things is not possible so Senior Wishes help make their dreams come true.
Centers Health Care, who owns Buffalo Center and Ellicott Center in Buffalo, also runs skilled other Western New York skilled nursing facilities in Monroe, Ontario and Steuben counties. The company has been giving back to non-profit organization in their selected regions throughout New York State, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Kansas in 2022.
Back in August of 2016, Centers Health Care and Senior Wishes first got together to help grant a wish to a Centers Health Care resident who wanted to be able to attend her grandson’s wedding in Atlanta, Georgia. Knowing that the airfare and other expenses would be too costly for the resident, she thought of Senior Wishes/UCHS and entered an application for a Senior Wish. To grant this special wish, Senior Wishes/UCHS turned to Centers Health Care, already a passionate supporter of the organization.
