The Hub on Smith Street is the recipient of the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce Key Service Award for 2020.

One of five Awards of Excellence presented annually by the Chamber, the Hub was announced in virtual awards ceremonies earlier this week.

Chamber board member Nadine Gale, who announced the Key Service award nominees, said the Hub provides community-based services that support and keep older adults engaged in the community.

Gale said The Hub started in 1973 when the Senior Citizens Council became a private, non-profit corporation, and was known as the Sheridan Senior Center until 2017 when the facility rebranded as The Hub to better reflect how the center encompasses people of all generations.

She said in the last fiscal year, The Hub served more than 3,500 individuals. That service included more than 106,000 meals served, 18,000 hours of homemaking and personal care and 18,000 hours of care provided through the Day Break program to families needing respite and care services.

In addition, Goose Creek Transit provided over 40,000 rides to Sheridan County residents through the transit’s door-to-door service and 12,000 rides on the fixed-route service.

The Key Service award honors a Chamber member non-profit organization that has made a significant impact in Sheridan County.
