Donation helps 'keep lights on' at Gresham Senior Center
In celebration of hitting an amazing milestone, an Oregon company donated to a Gresham nonprofit center dedicated to uplifting local seniors.
Northwest Reverse Mortgage presented a check for $1,000 to the Gresham Senior Center Wednesday morning, May 5. This donation commemorates the company saving customers more than $1 million in monthly mortgage payments, collectively.
"It's important to keep this facility open and functional — they are making a difference for so many in the community," said Breazy Wirth, business development specialist. "We hope others follow in our footsteps by making donations to the local senior centers in their areas."
The donation comes at a crucial time for the Gresham Senior Center, 600 N.E. Eighth St., as it continues to rebound from a difficult year that saw fundraisers shuttered and finances hit a dire place. The money will help handle looming utility bills and other payments.
"This helps us get through the pandemic until we can safely reopen," said Paul Nasiatka, president of the center.
