Christmas came early for tenants at Colony Estates, a senior housing facility in Palmer owned by Mat-Su Senior Services (Palmer Senior Citizens Center, Inc.). Lowe’s Home Improvement Center through the Lowe’s Hero’s Project partnering with Sheremet Homes donated hundreds of hours of labor and thousands of dollars of supplies to repaint and redecorate the facility which was constructed in 1998.
The Mat-Su Senior Services is dedicated to ensuring seniors have a good quality of life. MSSS provides services such as congregate and home-delivered (Meals on Wheels) meals, transportation, chore services, adult day services, respite services, senior employment opportunities, exercise programs and so much more. As a non-profit organization that relies on state and federal funding; businesses such as Lowe’s and Sheremet Homes should be recognized and commended for their outstanding service to make our community great.
