Beginning in 2002, nearly $300,000 was pledged by businesses and individuals to support an application to receive state tax credits in order to build a Senior Citizen Center in Parsons. That year the application was denied, but the following year the city and the Community Foundation reapplied, and this time the tax credits were awarded.
A total of $276,000 was raised to construct the Senior Center and Grandview Products donated a kitchen. Today there is a full calendar of events hosted at the Center and it is widely used by seniors, or those accompanying a senior. Donations to offset the daily operations of the Center may be made through the Parsons Area Community Foundation.
