I would like to take this time to remind everyone that the Thurmont Senior Center is independent from Frederick County, we are not county funded.  We operate on funds we receive as donations or grants we are awarded. We have our monthly fundraiser at Roy Roger’s, as well as our bingo that all of the money we collect goes directly to the needs of the center. So, as you are shopping for your families and thinking of where you could donate before the end of the year remember we are a 501C 3 organization and we would greatly appreciate any donation you may be able to share. We also take donations of soda, chips, bottles of water and prepackaged snacks.
