Legislator Patrick Burke to hold Senior Outreach


Erie County Legislator Patrick Burke will hold a Senior Outreach at Tosh Collins Senior Center on Thursday April 10th from 11am to 4pm. Tosh Collins Senior Center is located at 35 Cazenovia St, Buffalo, NY. Representatives from the New York Senior Action as well as Erie County Senior Services will be available. Topics to be discussed will include nutrition programs, wellness activities, health insurance counseling, volunteer opportunities, transportation, and caregiver issues. Also being addressed is the fact that seniors within the district do not apply for approximately $2,300 in benefits for which they are entitled. “The majority of seniors are living on a fixed income and a very tight budget. As the parents of three young children, my wife and I know what it’s like to live on a tight budget. After school supplies, youth sports, clothes, and so on, we don’t have a lot of money left over at the end of the week; we take every chance we can to save money, we’re practical.” If you plan on attending or have questions please call 858-8480 or contact Patrick.Burke@erie.gov. “Please tell your family and neighbors who also may benefit from this much needed information. Encourage them to come along or call for more information. As your County Legislator, I strongly encourage our seniors to make sure that they receive all the benefits that they deserve.”
