MASS is Partially Funded by:
The Mendota Area Senior Services has suspended transportation services provided on Saturday mornings from 8:00 - 12 Noon.
Due to the current budget crisis in the State of Illinois and the inability of our state officials to pass a budget, MASS’ Board of Directors voted to suspend Saturday services until funding issues are resolved. The board and staff of Mendota Area Senior Services are committed to keeping our vital services operational for as long as possible, but may be forced to make further cuts in the future.
We encourage you to contact your elected officials and let them know how necessary MASS services are to you and the area we serve, and that you urge them to find a way to end the budget impasse. MASS has available a listing of our area officials and their contact information for your convenience.
A HUGE "Thank You" Everyone!
Mendota Area Senior Services (MASS) would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our 2016 Pork Chop BBQ/Silent Auction & MHS Jazz Concert such a great success. If you bought a ticket, bid on an auction item, took a chance on the raffles, or simply just came to hear the wonderful musicians perform, we thank you for taking the time to spend your evening with us.
Every dollar that was raised will help MASS continue on with our mission of providing services to our senior citizens and disabled clients. Keeping our doors open has been an ongoing challenge due to the State of Illinois budget impasse, but we keep on fighting because of the support we receive from our community and surrounding areas.
To all who donated items for the auction and supplies for the BBQ, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. To our volunteers who are the heart of our organization, thank you, thank you! We could not and would not have made it without you! Each and every one of you brings a special and unique talent that benefits MASS tremendously. To Chris Dortwegt, Lori Schrock, Rex Benson, and the MHS and Alumni musicians, thank you for sharing your talent with all of us and providing the perfect ending to a great evening.
