Young at Heart (YAH)
Young At Heart is a non-profit fund raising arm of the Douglas County Senior Center and sponsor of programs for seniors. Funds are raised to sponsor programs and projects approved by the YAH Board of Trustees that benefit seniors of Douglas County, help with the operation of the center, fund replacement equipment and help equip the new center.
The Young at Heart has fundraising events during the year to help us fund the Hot Soup Program. We have activities in which the seniors enjoy Valentines' Day, Easter, Mother's/Father's Day celebrations with a raffle basket. We have two Trunk Events, Ice Cream Social/Bingo, Monthly Bingo, Holiday Craft Fair, support Big Mama's Show and Shine for Meals on Wheels, Holiday Gift Bags for our Home Bound Seniors (165) and a free Holiday lunch for all Young at Heart Members.
We also have our Gift Shop where we have over 115 vendors, all homemade items, charging a 15% commission.
