Mansfield’s new Senior Center Site Director, Candace Graham has announced plans to host a Thanksgiving Holiday Fundraiser, which will benefit the center. This fundraiser is scheduled for November 16 at 11:30 a.m. The meal will consist of turkey/cornbread dressing, seasoned green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, a roll and a pumpkin dessert.
“I have just recently been made aware of how gracious the townspeople have supported our fundraiser efforts in the past and we¬† hope that tradition continues,” stated Graham.
The cost per plate this year is $10. Graham explained the reasoning for why that cost had gone up. “I would like to explain the $10 plate cost to hopefully encourage each of you to continue to participate. Each year our accounting firm gives us our plate cost with depreciation and this is what it costs SRCA to make the meals we serve…With the rising food cost there is no way we can order a meal plate for a fundraiser at $5. We actually have been losing money by doing that and when we do, that takes away funds necessary for us to buy food and run our program efficiently. I hope this gives some clarity to why it is necessary to go up on the charge.”
Graham welcomes any questions the community may have. You can contact her 479-928-4429. “The Mansfield Senior Center hopes to see continued support from such a giving town,” she concluded.
