Golden Hub gets fresh look with help from recent grant

PROGRESS AT THE HUB — Golden Hub Foundation President Britt Pounds (center) presents a $27,000 check in grant funding to Golden Hub Senior Center Director Denise Usener (left) and board of directors president Judy Hoopman to cover the cost of a con-struction project to repair and update the front of the community facility, located at 1009 North Lincoln Street.

Work to update the front of the Golden Hub Senior Center, 1009 North Lincoln Street, as well as to correct some of the site’s leaking and sagging areas has been completed.

The cost of construction was covered by $27,000 in grant funds provided by the Golden Hub Foundation, whose purpose is to support and protect the mission of the facility.

Now, work is proceeding on completing improvements to the exterior through a grant from the local Stevens Foundation, which has supported many of the earlier interior improvements to the center.

A Golden Hub spokesman noted that none of the donations made to the Hub by individuals, groups and businesses are used for any of the ongoing physical improvements. It is strict policy, she said, to use grant funding for any such projects so that donated funds go directly to funding Meals on Wheels, the congregate dining and other programs offered there.
