What is F.I.N.E. ?

F.I.N.E. is a charitable organization 501C(3) committed to raising funds for the benefit of elder persons in Northbridge, Massachusetts.  The organization’s main concern is to the Northbridge Senior Center.  The Friends of Northbridge Elders has and continues to be able to do all these wonderful things for the Northbridge Senior Center through the generosity of all its members and the general public who volunteer, donate, and support the many fund raisers that they hold throughout the year, making all this possible. 

We again thank especially all members for their participation and support.  With everyone’s help and backing, we will continue to provide for the Center’s needs in the future.  Since 1994, all of the following that have been provided are above and beyond the operational budget of the Center which is funded by the Town of Northbridge and administered by the Council on Aging.
