We are all being touched by this COVID-19 pandemic but charities are always the hardest hit during a crisis. Meals On Wheels has been providing meals for our elderly shut-ins for decades but now where we are all asked to stay home and keep a distance, the elderly are even more affected.
"We do have a waiting list for meals on wheels and it ranges anywhere between 350 and 500, just in Orange County," said Marsha Lorenz, president and CEO of Seniors First and Meals on Wheels.
Nationwide, one in six seniors go hungry.
While I know many have lost jobs and are scared but if you are young, healthy and able to help your community, I ask you to please consider helping others who may not have someone to look after them.
God Bless and let's pray this pandemic comes to an end sooner than later. ~grace
