Assembling a car for seniors

Fayette Senior Services, Inc. (FSS), a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity, has started an intriguing and unique spin to your average fundraising campaign in order to obtain funds for a new wheelchair accessible van for senior transportation.

This holiday season, consider purchasing a tax-deductible gift that is a little outside the box.

It may not be a gift you will see on most people’s Christmas list, but for many in Fayette County’s community, this gift will mean much more than any gift you may be wrapping.
