The Toledo Community Foundation board has approved a $6,050 grant for the East Toledo Family Center that will pay for free seniors services such as theme parties, evening meals, cooking and nutrition classes, and a volunteer breakfast at the East Toledo Senior Activities Center.

The foundation is a public charitable organization in existence since 1973 that has assets of $160 million in more than 540 funds.
