THE BRONX - A senior center in the Bronx received enough donations to continue after it was on the chopping block.

News 12 earlier reported the Glebe Avenue Senior Center could be shut down due to city budget cuts. Local leaders found discretionary funds to keep the center open but needed more funds for supplies.

The center recently received several donations including new chairs, office supplies, food items and free cable as well as a radio service.

Seniors say they are excited to receive the supplies and thank the many donors.
