Help CoA cross capital-campaign finish line

Town of Arlington seal

Aims to open doors in fall

The Council on Aging is counting down the days until the renovated Arlington Community Center is complete, and we can open our doors again to our beloved older adults. 

Prepandemic, we would be reaching out this time of year, asking you to register for our Arlington for All Ages 5K Race. This year, we are asking you to join us in crossing a different type of finish line.

We invite you to support our capital campaign, which will fund the remaining furnishings, accessories and technology that our older residents will put to good use once we reopen. Your donation to the capital campaign is fully tax-deductible through the Health and Human Services Charitable Corp.

The Arlington Community Center is only a couple of months away from reopening as the facility that we dreamed of: a multipurpose building where more than 2,000 Arlington residents attend classes, enjoy cultural events, receive support from our social workers, attend luncheons, take fitness classes, eat meals, attend lectures, participate in book clubs and much more. 

If you would like additional information or if you have any questions, please feel welcome to call our Executive Director, Kristine Shah at 781-316-3400.  Council on Aging, 27 Maple St., Arlington, MA 02476.

Thank you for helping us cross the finish line of the capital campaign. Donate here >>
