ROCHELLE The Hub City Senior Center officials are asking for donations to get rolling. The center is purchasing a van to transport seniors and needs help raising money to finance the minivan.

Connie Doughtery, director, explained the board asked her to raise $15,000; however, she would like to raise $20,000 to cover more costs and not dip into savings.

Doughtery sent out a letter to individuals on the centers mailing list asking for donations of $10.85 to cover the exact amount she needed. Less than a month later the center has received many generous donations and has raised $14,000.

Doughtery is very thankful for all the generous donations and appreciates the communities support. She is very surprised to see how much money was raised in such a short amount of time.
