STERLING – Whiteside County Senior Center, along with five state Triad organizations, will receive approximately $2,000 from public safety grants from the American Water Charitable Foundation.

Triad is dedicated to keeping senior citizens safe and improving their quality of life, according to Karla Olson, Illinois American Water president.
