Senior Citizens to quit serving meals in facility; Meals on Wheels will continue

1145

The Clay County Senior Citizens Center has announced it will no longer serve meals inside the facility beginning June 2. Meals-on-wheels will be continued to be delivered.

May 30 will be the last day the center will serve meals in the dining room.

“We hate to have to do this but we have not had the community support to sustain the operations of the center,” said Board of Directors President Terry Reed. “This step has been taken in order to keep the center operating and not have to close our doors completely.”

The Center provides Meals-on-wheels five days a week to homebound residents of Henrietta, and sends an extra meal during times of inclement weather or for holidays. Those receiving meals could be a neighbor, a parent or grandparent. Our volunteers are dedicated people of the community who not only deliver meals but check on the welfare of those who they deliver to.

“We also get them the assistance and help when needed,” Reed said. “The delivery of meals is a very important function of the center and our volunteers are very special and deeply appreciated people. We can always use and need volunteers for deliveries.”

Schedules will be adjusted to accommodate activities held at the Center.

“Thank you to those who already support the center. With your continued help we can keep the center open and serving the community of Henrietta,” said Reed.
