Volunteers Deliver Meals To Those 60 and Over During COVID-19 Outbreak

Local volunteers are pulling out all the stops to deliver meals to those 60 and over who are following County guidance to stay home amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The program is a collaboration between several key organizations.

United Way of Lewis County is handling financials and volunteer recruitment. Lewis County Seniors is taking care of meal preparation. And Twin Transit is delivering meals. Other key organizations like Catholic Community Services and local school districts are pitching in as well to make the program a success.

It has been a flurry of activity since the program started – including one day where over 800 meals were prepared!

Volunteers are needed to fill important roles. Please visit VolunteerLewis.org and click on United Way of Lewis County to sign up for this project. If you have questions or need meal deliveries, please contact 1-855-581-9495 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
