    This past Thursday, the Central Massachusetts Agency on Aging and the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office presented bags of gifts as part of Shrewsbury Senior Center’s “Gifts for Seniors” program.

    Staff, volunteers, and community members gathered to celebrate the item donations and explain the importance of this collaboration. There was even an online shoutout by the Bombas sock company afterwards!
