This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who really stepped it up during the COVID-19 shutdown. Mae Luerco had been volunteering her time in the food program before the shutdown, coming in and accepting donations, taking down names, and checking membership. She would also come in early and before the rush of the crowd, to help with setting up, cleaning tables, vacuuming, and emptying the trash. Once the shutdown happened as our lunch program evolved while still keeping the food program, Mae went into overdrive. While others stayed home, Mae came in 5 days a week to help package and pass out the lunches, making sure all the health regulations were maintained. She would then stay after to help out with the Walmart Food Program, unloading the food, separating and sorting, then handing that out as well. Again, once she was done, she would help clean up and take down the area. During all this, her perpetual smile and sweet attitude never wavered. Thanks Mae for making sure our seniors got something to eat.

With temps hitting over the century mark, we long for cooler weather. To help us keep our thoughts cool, we are in the planning stages of our annual Operation Senior Claus. Every year we help the man with the bag by providing for seniors for Christmas Day who are alone, or in need of some kindness.

Last year the center provided over 125 seniors with a piping hot, home-cooked dinner, a basket full of food, as well as non-perishable items. Each senior also got a gift card for Stater Bros. For us to be successful again this year, we need your help in several ways.

We will be looking for: volunteers to deliver the dinners to needy seniors in the area, non-perishable food items, cash donations to buy food, gift cards to Stater Bros. In $10 increments, or items that can be put into their baskets. The amounts dont have to be large to make a big impact on a family. Please think about giving only a few hours of your time, or donating items to make someones day. For more details, call the center at 862-8104.
