"Since we are not able to have fundraisers, I am going to need the community's support more than ever to meet our goal this year. Please remember us at this time.

"We will not discontinue this essential service for our community. You can do your part by staying home and helping to slow down the spread of COVID-19. If you are a senior over 60 who is staying at home, afraid to get out because of the pandemic and need food please give us a call. 870-446-5531.
