The Friends of the Newbury C.O.A. is a nonprofit 501c3 organization formed to support and enhance the programs and activities of the Council on Aging. The Friends primary purpose is to raise money through membership dues, donations, fund raising events, grant writing, and to receive gifts and bequests. Without these funds, some of the classes and activities available at the Senior Center would not be possible.
