Congratulations to the Wauwatosa Senior Centers for receiving a Green Bay Packers Foundation grant.

The grant will allow us to purchase laptops and provide instruction to seniors. During the pandemic, seniors who had previously functioned without technology suddenly found themselves being referred to the internet to fulfill their basic life needs such as grocery shop, request an absentee ballot, fill out the Census 2020, pay bills and even attend doctor's appointments.
