The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) presented a $5,000 Community Assistance Fund (CAF) Grant to Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, which will support its Assistance to Individuals Fund.
This fund helps Fort Bend Seniors provide assistance to local senior adults on an as-needed basis in the form of, but not limited to, small refrigerators and freezers, microwaves, utility bill assistance, and home repair.
Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels is committed to helping seniors remain independent by enhancing their quality of life through services and resources. Programs and services enable area senior adults to remain in their homes and to be an integral part of the community for as long as possible. Currently, Fort Bend Seniors serves over 1,000 senior adults per day.
FBJSL accepts CAF applications throughout the year for grant funding up to $5,000 per year. Applicants must be nonprofit organizations serving Fort Bend County with requests to fund a critical need, pilot program and/or expand a significant service to the community.
