The Syracuse Senior Center along with 14 other  Senior Centers of the Blue Rivers Area Agency on Aging (Blue Rivers AAA), has been awarded a $1,500 grant from the Immanuel Vision Foundation (IVF), a non-profit charitable foundation connected with Immanuel Communities, a non-profit “Serving Arm” of the Nebraska Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
The goal of IVF is to serve “the ministry of the church, seniors, and the health of the community”.  
To that end, the IVF Board of Directors has chosen to support seniors across the state of Nebraska by offering a one-time grant to each Senior Center in the state connected with the eight Area Agencies on Aging.
The grant may be used for any legitimate and authorized program or activity of the Senior Center.  
It may be used for general program support, operational expenses, building or maintenance expenses, or any special program chosen by the Senior Center.
“We are so appreciative of the Immanuel Vision Foundation for this opportunity to receive this grant here at the Syracuse Senior Center,” said Christie Brehm, manager of Syracuse Senior Center
“We are looking forward to planning some fun activities and entertainment in the near future.”
