Lewis County Community Service Coalition
Lewis County Public Health & Social Services highly encourage individuals age 60 and over to remain in their homes at this time. This precautionary measure is critical to protecting Lewis County’s vulnerable populations against the spread of the COVID-19 virus. While necessary, this step will be difficult for many, particularly those who depend on local senior centers for food, socialization and other services.
United Way of Lewis County, Lewis County Seniors and Twin Transit are partnering to help our senior citizens during this difficult time. Together, these organizations are preparing and delivering food to those age 60 and older who are following county guidance to self-quarantine at home. They are also devising an action plan to mobilize vital resources such as medication and other essential needs to support our elderly population.
“This partnership ensures that our seniors can stay home and protected, without having to worry about where their next meal will come from,” said Glenda Forga. “Safety is everyone’s top priority right now. Through this partnership, we can keep our seniors safe – and well cared for.”
Volunteers are needed to fill important roles in this county-wide plan. If you have questions or need meal deliveries, please contact 1-855-581-9495.
