Grants to fund computers for seniors
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Proving that one is never too old to learn, the demand for computer training has led to the approval of grants for computers at the Waynesboro, Pa., and Greencastle, Pa., senior centers.
Franklin County Area Agency on Aging Director Kim Murdaugh told the Franklin County Commissioners Tuesday that Pennsylvania Department of Aging grants totaling $15,500 were approved for two computers at each senior center, along with connection to the Internet.
Murdaugh said 180 senior citizens are on the computer training waiting list. Since last fall, the agency has held three training courses at the county vocational-technical school and Chambersburg High School.
