GLENDALE HEIGHTS – Roughly 100 DuPage County senior citizens were able to access helpful resources and meet with service providers during a senior resource fair hosted by State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) on Tuesday.
“I am glad to help area seniors navigate the sometimes complicated web of government agencies and programs – bringing all these organizations together under one roof makes it much easier for retirees.” Cullerton said.
State, local and private-sector senior programs were on hand at the Glendale Heights Center for Senior Citizens to give out information and answer questions. Several health organizations provided medical screenings for participating seniors.
Cullerton hosted his first senior fair last summer and plans on hosting another fair later this year.
“At the last summer’s fair it was obvious that this type of event is extremely valuable, which is why I’m making this a semi-annual event,” Cullerton said.
