I want to thank the citizens who made contributions to the Senior Meal Programs in May and June.
You helped bridge the gap in funding due to a 18 percent-plus increase in demand. A total of 2,498 seniors were served, 1,207 at 14 congregate sites (71,226 meals), and 1,291 (154,527 meals) in their homes.
Howard Training Center ran out of funding in May this year. Usually we run out in June. We have always served more meals than contracted for, covering the cost through fund-raising. This year we couldn't keep up with the demand. But a miracle happened and the community joined together and raised an additional $120,000.
