23 Mar Council on Aging Update
Updates for March 23rd, 2020.
We’re now being told that the Foodbank of Western Massachusetts will be doing the Brown Bag delivery for March after all. They’ll come to us pre-packaged. We’ll deliver to your door this time…we really don’t want people in the building if we can avoid it.
CVS Pharmacy in North Adams will also deliver medications via mail. It’s a program called Rx Delivery. The number there is 413.664.8712. They need pertinent information to set up an account with you including credit or debit cards.
The Williamstown Food Pantry at St.Patrick/Raphael Church will be open again this week, Wednesday March 25th, 9:30 to noon. If you’re driving over, use Mission Drive and circle around behind the church, stay in line, do not exit your car. Volunteers will ask for your list, completed packages will be left on the table for drive by pick up.
Walkers should go to the front of the line and they’ll try to serve you quickly.
At no time will anyone be allowed into the building!
And while they’re thankful that they are thinking of them, they’re not able to accept any new volunteers at the moment!
Big Y has indicated that they will be open from 8AM-8PM and reserved times at 7:00AM-8:00 AM for seniors and people with compromised immunity daily.
Ocean State Job Lot is keeping regular hours but are limiting purchase of essential items, such as cleaning and personal care supplies.
