Volunteer Fighting Back Against Sequester Cuts for Marion Senior Services

By

A grassroots fundraising campaign could help keep Marion Senior Services running as it had before $78,000 in federal sequestration cuts.

Those cuts, which impact meal delivery and service, citizen transportation and Senior Services Center hours, unfortunately remain much larger than the $16,000 that volunteer and advocate Mildred Musho has been able to raise for the cause.

But she will continue to seek support.

“I am an activist, and if something triggers me to act, I act,” she said.

Sarah Stroh, executive director for Marion Senior Services, said she has already received dozens of letters and financial donations since the cuts began to take effect in late May.
