AGING DOESN'T COME WITH A SCRIPT. WE'RE HERE TO HELP.
In these difficult days, we’ve all learned what it feels like to be vulnerable. Perhaps we can now better imagine what it must feel like to struggle to meet basic needs like food.
Many older adults are finding it more difficult to grocery shop, pick up prescriptions, or safely see family and friends. As a result, more seniors across Central Oregon have asked us for additional food support over the past several months.
The Council on Aging of Central Oregon is working hard to provide additional nutritious meals to struggling seniors. Our Meals-on-Wheels home-delivery is continuing uninterrupted using a safe, non-contact delivery method. And, free community lunches are now available as Grab-N-Go take-out in many locations across the tri-county.
Somewhere along the way, everyone needs an extra layer of support. Additional funds for our programs would make it possible to provide meals to more seniors.
You can donate here. Or, if you prefer to give by check, please send your donation to The Council on Aging, 373 NE Greenwood Street, Bend, OR 97701.
