|The Elk Grove Senior Center will receive $25,000 over the next five years.|
Recipients of donations from the Gil Moore Family Foundation include Project Ride, The Elk Grove Adult Community Center, the Senior Center of Elk Grove and the Kohl’s Kids Back to School Shopping Spree.
“Steve Detrick and Sophia Scherman [Elk Grove city council members] were instrumental in making me aware of the needs of the Senior Center of Elk Grove,” foundation founder Gil Moore said. “After meeting Patricia Beal, the Executive Director, I was in awe of the commitment from the volunteers, and of her and her staff in ‘making a difference.’”
The Gil Moore Family Foundations which was founded in 2003, has donated to a number of charities through the years with a special focus on helping children and adults with Autism. “I have been involved with other charitable organizations for over 12 years to assist children with Autism in the Special Olympics,” Moore noted.
The donations include $800 for the shopping spree, $3,200 for the adult training center and $5,000 to the senior center and $5,000 for each of the next four years for a total of $25,000.
“It is with great honor and respect that I challenge my peers to step up and give back to the community,” Moore added.
