The Franklin County Task Force on Aging is a mission focused organization with the goal of assisting the seniors of our Central Ohio community. One way for us to do this is through our Change for Change program.
Change for Change is an account set up separate from our operating account. Through this account we have the ability to write up to a $250 check for a senior in need. We also have the ability to purchase products or services equivalent to the $250 in lieu of the check.
Some possible reasons a senior might benefit from Change for Change:
We also realize that from time to time our members may encounter transitional difficulties as they search for new jobs or need assistance to get them through the probationary period with a new company. For this reason, we are also willing to help our members through the Change for Change fund. We have been able to assist three members in this way, helping to get them through a difficult time.
The Franklin County Task Force on Aging conducts several fund raisers throughout the year to build funds in the Change for Change account.

Our fundraising efforts are designed to boost the reserves in our Change for Change account so that we may offer this support each month of the year.
For the past several years our members have assisted with planning and organization of a Traveling Bake Sale, where members have either donated baked goods for the sale or have participated on one of the traveling teams. Teams would go to various senior centers over a two day period, offering a wide variety of delicious baked goods in exchange for donations to the fund. Past baked sales have earned nearly $800.
This year's Team Captains and locations were:
Between the two events, our fundraising efforts brought in over $1200 for the Change for Change account.
