KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Noble County senior center is looking to grow into a new facility.

It's fundraising to turn the body shop at the old Ford dealership near downtown into a place for senior citizens to gather.

The Noble County Council on Aging said their current facility is in a two story house and doesn’t meet their needs.

"People that use walkers, wheelchairs. Our facility has five bathrooms, but only one of them is handicap accessible and it is actually built into the enclosed garage," said Noble County Council on Aging executive director Cherish Smith.

The AEP Foundation donated $50,000 towards the project.

You can also donate for the new facility online.
