“The Resource Center’s mission is to provide quality solutions and exciting opportunities for local seniors, enabling them to live with dignity and the highest possible level of health, independence and quality of life and we couldn’t achieve this without the generous support of caring donors like Arnold,” said Dick Pelton, co-chair of AIPRC, in a press release Wednesday.
