The money was donated as part of the Main Street Congregational Church’s Mission Grant Fund, which aims to provide seed money to people within the community who want to set up or fund a “helping others” program, according to the church’s website.

Connor said receiving the grant was “huge” for the senior center, and she expressed her gratitude to Main Street Congregational Church for its support, dedication and investment in the center and its programming.
