Message from CEO Tracey Bedenbaugh

Thank you for visiting the Piedmont Agency on Aging website. We’ve provided services to seniors in Greenwood and Abbeville counties since 1971. In October of 2014, our work expanded to Laurens County and Saluda County in January 2017. Piedmont Agency on Aging is currently the only local Council on Aging serving four counties in South Carolina.

Piedmont Agency on Aging depends on volunteers and the financial support of local donors who believe in our work and our mission in the community. There’s a number of ways throughout the year that you can invest in the work of Piedmont Agency on Aging:

  • Volunteer at your local Senior Center to deliver a Meals on Wheels route. It takes less than an hour to deliver a route. Volunteers have a direct impact on our delivery cost, plus they receive the immediate benefit of helping someone in need. Call 223-2233 in Greenwood County, 366-9666 in Abbeville County or 547-8159 in Laurens County and 554-5499 in Saluda County for more information on how to volunteer.
  • Give a tax-deductible donation to Piedmont Agency on Aging, P.O. Box 997, Greenwood, SC 29648. Your gift will directly benefit the seniors in our community who depend on Meals on Wheels each day. We’ve prepared and delivered over 4.5 million meals since 1971! Your gifts help us reach the growing number of seniors who need this service!
  • Donate your church van or vehicle so seniors can be transported to medical appointments, dialysis treatment, grocery store or to nutrition sites for a daily meal.
  • Volunteer at one of our special fundraising events during the year or involve your Sunday school class or organization in one of our annual programs geared specifically toward the Meals on Wheels program.

Thank you for your interest in our work!
