Building Closure

As we all continue to watch the COVID-19 situation and await guidance from state and federal health officials, I want to assure you that your Canton COA team has been working diligently behind the scenes to put in place protective measures for you.  Your health and wellness continue to be our number one priority.  Beginning Monday, March 16th, 2020 the Senior Center will be closed to the public, indefinitely.  Your COA Team will be working on and addressing the challenges we are currently facing, and will be able to answer your phone calls and work through issues that arise.  At this time the Meals on Wheels Program and Take-Out Congregate Meals, Limited Transportation and Outreach Services will continue.  This was not an easy decision, we care deeply about all of our members, and we will continue to be here to support you.

 We also want to make sure you are aware that this has unfortunately become an opportunity for COVID-19 scams. The AG’s office warns that scammers may try to steal your money and information by sending phony communications via phone calls, emails and texts. If a stranger claiming to be an expert on coronavirus contacts you, ignore them

 Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can be of any assistance 781 828 1323.
