YONKERS, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino and Legislator David Tubiolo Tuesday announced $15,000 in grants to assist seniors programs at the Aisling Irish Community Center in Yonkers.
Astorino’s $10,000 and Tubiolo’s $5,000 will help support free weekly lunches, health screenings, computer classes and more, according to a release from Weschestergov.com.
“The Aisling Irish Community Center does so much for the people of Yonkers,” Astorino said. “For many seniors, it is a home away from home. This funding will go a long way towards making sure seniors in the community are living healthy and happy lives, surrounded by friends and neighbors who are there for them.”
The announcement came as part of the center’s annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration and Irish-American Heritage Month festivities, the release said.
Astorino and Tubiolo also presented proclamations declaring March 21, 2017, to be “Aisling Irish Community Center Recognition Day” in Westchester County.
