KUNA SENIOR NEWS

Kuna Senior Center

229 N. Ave. B | 208-922-9714

Kuna Senior Center is OPEN Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with Central District Health District measures in place. Virus-related precautions include front desk temperature check, social distance seating, sanitizers available, and all touched surfaces are sanitized daily.

Silent auction fund-raising is here to help us pay for programs! “Touchless” silent auction is located next to the front desk. This month it’s a seven-piece glass decanter set (one decanter with glass topper and six old-fashion-style tumblers). Let the front desk volunteer know and they’ll record your name, phone number and bid amount. Winning bid will be announced on Halloween Friday, Oct. 30.

Kuna Senior Center bus patrons may call 208-880-0556 for bus questions and ride reservations.

“Free Bread Friday” continues with cash donations gladly accepted for the church driver who handles pick-ups from various area stores. Many nutritional sliced bread options are available, often with bagels, donuts and English muffins on the table.

Please call the center at 208-922-9714 regarding any Kuna-area senior needing assistance.
