SACRAMENTO - The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians and San Pablo Lytton Casino announced today a $58,000 donation to the San Pablo Senior Center to help the local senior center continue the essential services it provides for the citizens in San Pablo. 
 
Representatives from the Tribe and Casino presented the check this morning to officials and participants from the Senior Center in a ceremony at the Civic Center complex on Church Lane in San Pablo.
 
The San Pablo Senior Center provides six meals a week to local citizens 60 years and older or 50 years of age, if disabled. The Senior Center also offers recreational and education activities along with social services six days a week. 
 
“The services provided by San Pablo Senior Center are critical for many people in the community,” said Margie Mejia, Chairwoman of the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians. “The Tribe has always held our elders in great regard and we are proud to extend that respect to the community with this contribution.” 
 
The San Pablo Senior Center also offers rides to local grocery stores and doctor’s appointments as well as encouraging social and work opportunities. San Pablo Lytton Casino has donated over $240,000 to the San Pablo Senior Center since 2003.
