The Friends of the Mattapoisett Council on Aging (FOTMCOA), a non-profit, non-governmental group, has been aiding COA programs and supplementing the needs of senior citizens in the community for many years. During that time, the FOTMCOA has purchased furnishings, appliances, and televisions that the COA has used in its social rooms for the benefit of seniors frequenting the COA.
In the community, the FOTMCOA has provided financial support to seniors in need of such items as a new refrigerator or kitchen stove.
The group also sponsors the monthly COA newsletter “Seasonings,” as well as hosting various special event luncheons throughout the year giving seniors the opportunity met up with other seniors for a bit of fun and food, social emotional support enriching the lives of Mattapoisett’s senior population.
The fundraising work of the FOTMCOA supports COA programs, education, and other needs for which public funds are either not available or need supplementing.
Due to a decrease in membership, new members are now urgently needed to carry on the mission of the FOTMCOA.
Can you help? If you can share an hour once a month to attend the FOTMCOA meeting or wish to assist in any way possible, please contact Anne Bartnowski at 508-758-4603 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
