Schaner Adult Center

East Pennsboro Township Schaner Adult Center offers a warm, friendly atmosphere to all aging adults throughout our community and surrounding areas.  We offer a range of events for adults such as educational activities, cooking time, guest speakers and a healthy daily lunch.  We also participate in line dancing, corn hole, and other physical activities.  We listen to the community and local interests, and plan trips from local businesses to attractions as far as Maryland, New Jersey and New York.

Our activity structure allows participants to make choices, plan their own schedule and do the things they enjoy doing.  We offer many ways for people to use the skills they've learned in their lives, socialize with peers, stay active and learn new things through fellowship.

Volunteers are needed

Volunteers are needed to pickup and deliver nutritious home cooked meals to homebound seniors residing in the East Pennsboro area. Two meals, one hot and one cold are delivered three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Meals are $7.00 per day. Some of your neighbors are in dire need of this assistance. In order to provide this service in the Enola area, volunteers are desperately needed. A driver and helper would pickup meals and deliver them to clients in the Enola area. Deliveries are usually completed by 12:30pm. Meals on Wheels is searching for volunteers to keep this worthwhile program going. Could you spare a couple of hours each week or part of a day once a month to provide this much needed service to your homebound neighbors who are in need? A coordinator for the East Pennsboro area as well as drivers are needed. Please consider this worthy cause. You can contact the Mechanicsburg Area Meals on Wheels, Inc. directly at 717-697-5011 or the Schaner Adult Center at 717-732-3915.
