Clothes Less Traveled Donation Fuels Fitness for Fayette Senior Services

August 24, 2018. FAYETTEVILLE, GA. Thanks to the generous donation of $8,400 made by  Clothes Less Traveled, Fayette Senior Services  was recently able to update some of their Fitness Center equipment. This purchase will provide Fayette Senior Services’ members with quality, updated and safe equipment as they continue to meet their health goals to stay healthy and independent as they age. FSS members are already enjoying the updated treadmills and recumbent bikes that were able to be purchased with this donation! One member shared that she takes advantage of the fitness center per her doctor’s suggestion to incorporate regular exercise into her daily routine. “My doctor told me that if I didn’t start exercising and showing progress, I would be an invalid,” she expressed. As she shared her story, she stated that she has found exercising to be more than just a physical relief, but also a mental one. “When I exercise I have time to think about my family and my prayer list.” Over the past six months, her doctor has been very pleased with the progress she has made and she claims it is due to the convenience of FSS! Not only has it helped her stay active and mobile, but it has acted as a stimulation for her social, emotional and mental health as well as it provides time for her to clear her head and interact with others. Fayette Senior Services strives to make a difference in the lives of seniors in all areas, and we could not do it without the support of our community to continue to meet the needs our members have. Thank you to Clothes Less Traveled for making it possible for FSS to continue to serve Fayette County as new needs arise.
