Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It’s Spring! We hope that the long slog through Covid is finally over and that you are able to once again get out and about--and enjoy a return to “normal”!

We are so proud to report that throughout the pandemic, the Tuckahoe Senior Citizens

and the Bronxville Senior Citizens, the two groups under the umbrella of the Senior Citizens Council, remained active and proactive, successfully fulfilling our number one objective: finding ways to prevent the devastating effects of isolation and loneliness that often accompany growing older. The directors of the TSC and BSC went far beyond the call of duty to provide their members with ways to stay in touch with one another and to participate in a variety of programs, first on Zoom and finally, more recently, back in person. The smiles on members’ faces couldn’t be hidden by their masks for long!

While the worst seems to be over, some of the consequences of the pandemic are

longer lasting for our organization, in particular in the form of increasingly higher costs. More than ever, we appreciate your support. We welcome you to visit here to make a donation and see the range of programs the TSC and BSC offer and/or to visit our centers to see the joy they bring to the members.

Thank you for giving generously.

Most sincerely,

Eleanor Gustafson

The Senior Citizens Council

has been a grassroots organization

within the communities of Tuckahoe and Bronxville, in Westchester County, New York since 1970.


Our philosophy is based on the premise that aging is a normal developmental process and that seniors need peers with whom they can interact to avoid isolation and loneliness.


The Senior Citizens Council is the parent organization of Tuckahoe Senior Citizens, established in 1970, and Bronxville Senior Citizens, established in 1974.

Our work is effective and far-reaching: we provide important support and community for seniors who may not have contact or connection beyond their homes. 

Senior Citizens Council is a 501(c)(3) 

nonprofit organization led by volunteers.

We are funded by grants, annual events and fundraisers.
