Welcome To The Edward King House Virtual Senior Center
For more than 50 years, the Edward King House Senior Center has served a vital role in our community by keeping pace with the ever-changing needs of the senior population. During these uncertain times we are doing our best to reach the senior population and their caregivers in new and innovative ways. We hope that you will take advantage of the up to date offerings on our webpage while our brick and mortar Center is closed during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Know that our staff are manning our phone lines as we speak to answer your questions and allay your concerns. Please call us at 401-846-7426. If we are on the line, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
It is at times like these that we often forget that the Edward King House is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to sustain its operations. Now, more than ever, we need your help to keep our programming funded. Although the Center closed, our staff is busy working each days making well-being calls, fielding questions and connecting seniors to much needed basic necessities and services. We are asking members of the community to take part in the BLITZER CHALLENGE. We are grateful to Mr. Michael Blitzer for his generous donation of $10,000 to keep our program running in support of seniors in our community. He is challenging others to do the same with any monetary donation that would help match is gift. Please click below to make your donation today!
Please make your check payable to Edward King House Senior Center and mail or bring it to 35 King Street, Newport, RI 02840. If you would like to speak with us about donating please call the center at 401-846-7426 ext 1 and ask for Carmela Geer, Executive Director.
