Stockbridge will soon be introducing a community senior center for the area. The goal is to have the Stockbridge Area Senior Center—located at 219 Elm Street in Stockbridge—up and running in January 2022. Currently the center is a work-in-progress as planners step through the process to obtain the grant money needed to make the center a reality.
Look for the senior center to include many programs for those 50 years of age and up. Meals will be served at least three days a week through the Tri-County Office on Aging in Lansing. Currently the plan is for the center to be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Evening event hours will be accommodated as needed.
To volunteer for the center or help with building preparations, please call the Stockbridge Area Senior Center at 734-926-5617 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations are also appreciated. The “Chelsea Senior Center” is temporarily acting as fiduciary and mentor for this Stockbridge effort. Therefore, make donations payable to the “Chelsea Senior Center” with a note in the check memo indicating “Funds to go to the Stockbridge Area Senior Center.”
Mail checks to the Chelsea Senior Center, 512 Washington St., Chelsea, MI 48118. Donations will be tax-deductible with a receipt or letter of receipt returned for your records.
