BANGOR – Here’s proof of truth in advertising – the commercial that states “the Pennsylvania Lottery benefits older Pennsylvanians” is true. The Slate Belt Senior Center is receiving a more than $112,000 grant, according to state Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton).

“Pennsylvania’s senior centers provide a myriad of services for our citizens throughout the day,” he said. “I’m glad to see the center in Bangor is receiving the 2nd-largest of the nearly 50 grants being distributed statewide.”

The Pennsylvania Department of Aging is distributing the grants, which are funded by the Pennsylvania Lottery. The Slate Belt Senior Center is located at 707 American Bangor Road, and provides services such hot meals, transportation, health and wellness checks and income tax assistance.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s district office at (610) 588-8011 or (610) 746-5090.
