(Sheridan Media.Com, January 11) – The Sheridan Senior Center’s Help at Home program got a $15,000 boost from Cloud Peak Energy Wednesday.
Dave Schwend, general manager of the company’s Spring Creek Coal Mine, presented the check to Senior Center representatives in a brief program in the center’s dining room in Sheridan. He said the company, which is headquartered in Gillette, tries to donate annually to the Sheridan facility.
Rindy West, who’s the senior center’s development director, said the senior center’s Help at Home program in particular was hurt this year by a loss of funds from the state of Wyoming.
Janet Korpela, who’s director of the Help at Home program, elaborated. 5
She said the donation means more people will be able to receive services through Help at Home. Help at Home is a licensed home health care service that provides housekeeping, personal care and meal preparation to older Sheridan residents, which allows them to stay in their own homes rather than going to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
