EVRPD Receives Grant to Continue Lunch Program for Seniors

Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD), provider of numerous recreational and community activities in Estes Valley, is pleased to announce a three-month pilot for a weekly lunch program at the Estes Valley Community Center starting in February 2018.

The District has been successful in securing a partner in SupplyWorks to launch the program at the Estes Valley Community Center. SupplyWorks generously awarded EVRPD with a $5,000 grant to facilitate the lunch program.

SupplyWorks is the leading national provider of integrated facility maintenance products, ranging from janitorial and cleaning supplies to plumbing, electrical, HVAC and more. SupplyWorks has been the long-time supplier to the Estes Park golf courses, the Lake Estes Marina, Estes Park Campgrounds at Mary's Lake and East Portal, and the Estes Park Senior Center.

"We anticipate the three-month pilot program will serve approximately 25-40 seniors each Thursday afternoon," said Teresa Jackson, Manager of Community Center Operations for EVRPD. "The fresh and healthy lunches will be catered by Jubilations and will include a hot main dish, salad, a drink and dessert.

Estes Valley Recreation and Park District strongly believes an affordable weekly lunch opportunity will assist with keeping our seniors active and engaged. With financial support from SupplyWorks, the District can maintain the fee structure of the existing lunch program offered at the senior center. Seniors 55 and older will pay $5 for lunch while those under 55 will pay $7.

"SupplyWorks is proud to support programming that will enhance the physical and mental well-being of seniors through socialization," said Rick Harper, Account Executive for SupplyWorks.
