Dedicated Service to Tarrant County Seniors
Mission "To help older adults build a brighter future for themselves and their community by enabling them to live independently with dignity."
Sixty & Better, is a non-profit organization that provides a wide range of programs and services that enable senior adults to live independently with dignity.

We are a group of ladies who meet every Monday here at the center and make clothing for the girls of Castleberry elementary schools who need them.
We work with donations only.
If you have any material, thread or sewing supplies that you are not using, they would be gladly accepted and used to put happy smiles on the faces of a lot of little girls. Cash donations are also gratefully accepted.
