The Marble Falls Senior Activity Center needs your help raising $40,000 to pay for a new roof after recent rains exacerbated already existing needs. Donations can be made on the center’s GoFundMe page.
The center, located at 618 Avenue L, has needed a new roof for several years, said Grant and Donations coordinator Dena Burroughs. The February winter storms caused ceiling tiles to fall and created leaks that dripped water into the building.
Although center officials did receive insurance money, they are thousands of dollars short of reaching their $40,000 goal.
“Now, every time it rains, it’ll start leaking again,” Burroughs said. “We do all of this stuff to the inside to make it more pleasant, but if it leaks, we’re defeating the purpose.”
In addition to repairing the roof, the center’s floors are also being retiled and interior walls repainted. Burroughs is pursuing grants to pay for improvements but has not yet received any.
