(New York, NY) – Today Senator Liz Krueger hosted her Fifth Annual Senior Resource Fair. At this free event seniors have the chance to talk to representatives from a variety of government and non-profit agencies that specialize in everything from healthcare to care-giver support to housing to healthy aging to volunteer opportunities to cultural affairs. Joining Senator Krueger and residents from the community were Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, NYC Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and Assembly Member Micah Kellner.
“Year after year, my Senior Resource Fair grows bigger. It never ceases to amaze me how strong of a demand there is for this type of event,” said Senator Krueger. “By bringing together government agencies, non profits and the communities they serve under one roof, we’ve been able to streamline the delivery of resources to hundreds of seniors and their caregivers who often have a hard time accessing relevant information. Too many seniors find themselves in real distress during these tough economic times, making it even more imperative that they are aware of every single service and opportunity that can be of assistance.”
