We support our own Campaign!  

Joan Cormack, a Ludlow native who passed away in 2013, left a generous contribution to The Friends of Ludlow Senior Center with hopes this might help support the effort to approve a new Senior Center in town.   

This endowment was our first contribution and became seed money for our Building Fund!


Big Y Supermarkets

We are grateful to Big Y for their very generous donation to our New Senior Center Building Fund.  

Big Y is an important corporate citizen in Ludlow and has been a generous supporter of our Seniors.  An important component of the partnership between Big Y and Ludlow's Seniors is Big Y's contribution to Wellness education and programs at the Senior Center.  We are very pleased that this Building Fund donation will support the sponsorship of the new Wellness Clinic space in the new building. 

Our first corporate donation received from
