October 2020 Newsletter
Due to COVID, congregate meals and activities are currently on hold. By early April, our meal delivery program quickly expanded from serving 9 to serving 124 individual older adults monthly. The dramatic growth was in obvious response to quarantine mandates and suggestions by the CDC for vulnerable populations to stay home and stay safe in the midst of the COVID pandemic.
