These private sources of funding, along with assistance from the City of Easley, the City of Liberty and investments from Pickens County Council and the SC Lt. Governor’s Office on Aging’s - Permanent Improvement Project grant, have helped to make substantial progress in funding the innovative project which focuses on the long term needs of our senior community.
Going forward, the McKissick Center will serve as a focal point for senior services and provide a continuum of care for active, aging and homebound individuals by providing daily meals, social, cultural and educational activities that are designed around the needs and interest of our seniors in mind.
