FiftyForward Madison Station

Whistlestop is FiftyForward Madison Station’s primary fundraiser, benefitting our diverse community of over 600 members.

In 2024, the Orient Express will take us to Paris, France! Known as the City of Love, Paris is a center for fashion, culture, delicious foods, and exceptional wines.

In addition to the reception, dinner and entertainment, we will recognize our Member of the Year, Conductor of the Year, and Community Service Award.

Our Good Works

Your support helps us strengthen our programs that serve our community.

This year, we began a partnership with the Metro Meals Program to counter food insecurity by providing high-quality, fresh, nutrient-dense meals to those 60 and older – at no cost to the recipient. With the help of Center volunteers, we currently serve 30 people per day.

After the December 2023 tornadoes that devastated parts of Madison, we partnered with the Community Resource Center, Second Harvest Food Bank, and Hands-on Nashville to become the community disaster distribution site. We served over 150 tornado survivors per day by providing food, hygiene products, and cleaning supplies.

We connect with older adults in our community, by increasing their engagement and quality of life through opportunities such as:

  • Access to wellness programs, including yoga and evidence-based Chair Arthritis Class
  • Scholarships for members below the federal poverty line
  • Engaging in opportunities to volunteer in the community
  • Partnering with the local police department to serve the senior homeless population
  • Teaching lifelong learning skills such as computer literacy
  • Care Assessment to help with housing and other daily needs
