Klamath Falls, Ore. – The Klamath Basin Senior Center is showing signs of aging.
Marc Kane serves as Executive Director. “We’re getting older and we need new parts – and the building is the same.”
In particular, Kane says the roof has had multiple repairs over the last two years, and now needs replacement.
Kane says a new heating and cooling system is also needed. “Between the roof, and the HVAC system, we’re looking at about a $180,000 bill.”
The project has already gotten help from the city, Sky Lakes Medical Center, and others.
“We’ve raised about 80 some thousand dollars already.” Notes Kane. “So we’ve got a little less thank $100,000 to go.”
The center is also pursuing several other grants, as well as a community campaign.
“We’ll probably need to raise 30 to 40 thousand dollars from individuals in the community.” Kane estimated. “And we’ll be doing a mail-out campaign soon.”
Kane will go before the Klamath County Commissioners Wednesday to seek additional funding.
