Shopping For Senior Citizens

1

I think we should identify senior citizens in our community and help them secure the essential items they need to keep them from having to leave the safety of their homes. (I.e. like grocery shopping, pharmacy, etc.)

  • My name is Elizabeth Williams and I represent Starkville’s Coalition on Poverty. During our last meeting we discussed this very issue. Many local churches are working within their church to meet the needs of their congregation’s senior citizens. Efforts to provide grocery shopping, pharmacy runs, and pre-packed meals were among the needs which churches were addressing. Many churches are also extending these services to people outside their church if identified.
