New Roof For Kemmerer Annex Health Care Facility

Jennings Terrace, Inc. has been notified that the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley has approved a grant for $15,000 for a new roof for the Kemmerer Annex Health Care Facility of Jennings Terrace.

Jennings Terrace was established in 1943 as a non-profit senior living community dedicated to offering holistic care to our seniors at affordable rates. Jennings provides independent living, assisted services and skilled nursing care.

The $15,000 grant will kick-off the “Raise the Roof” Campaign to be promoted to the community this fall and year-end.  David Scarpetta, Executive Director of Jennings Terrace, comments, “This grant from the Community Foundation is a great start for our 2011 – 2012 Annual Campaign.   We are grateful once again for the support of the Community Foundation.”

The Community Foundation supported Jennings Terrace in 2009 for the purchase of a 12 passenger Courtesy Van with a lift.  The Van has provided a great service to residents and families since its purchase.

The Community Foundation is a non-profit, philanthropic organization that administers individual charitable funds from which grants and scholarships are distributed to benefit the Citizens of the Greater Aurora Area, the Tri-Cities and Kendall County, Illinois.  Further information about the Community Foundation is available at
