Lets Make a Change! Fountain Valley Senior Center has new programs and membership is growing. Thursday, June 16, is going to be “Make a Change” day. On June 16 you bring any loose change you have at home to fill some buckets.
This change will go to help support some of the programs that we are offering and help to start some new ones. Dig through that furniture, look under the cushions, vacuum out your cars, look through your junk drawer and bring in that change.
