Berkeley County MEALS ON WHEELS

and COVID-19 

 

 

 

 

IN 2020, WE DELIVERED OVER 50,000 MEALS WITH NO INTERRUPTIONS DUE TO THE ONGOING PANDEMIC

Berkeley County Meals on Wheels is doing its best to continue providing hot meals to the homes of over 200 homebound seniors and adults with disabilities in a given week during this coronavirus pandemic. We continue to work with all due effort to ensure that we protect our recipients from exposure and that they continue to receive regular communications from us so they know they can count on receiving their meals. 

We are continuing to follow safety protocols and safeguards around meal production, deliveries, and client and staff/volunteer interaction to keep everyone involved safe and healthy.

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO KEEP OUR HOMEBOUND SENIORS FED DURING THE PANDEMIC

We have a constant need for extra help to pack and deliver meals to our senior clients to keep our mission alive. Many of our regularly scheduled volunteers are over the age of 65 and are still opting to stay home due to being in a higher risk group, leaving us short-handed many days of the week. If you can lend a hand, we would be ever so grateful.

HOW YOU CAN DO YOUR PART

TO HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

  • WEAR A MASK WHEN OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOME

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Practice Social Distancing, staying at least 6’ away from others that you do no share a home with

  • Always cover your cough or sneeze using a tissue, disposing of tissue after use

  • Stay home if you are sick 

  • Get your COVID-19 as soon as you can

MOST IMPORTANT

PLEASE CONTINUE TO WEAR A MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCE when you're outside of your home. We all know it's not fun to still be wearing masks and to not be shaking hands and hugging, but we are still in a pandemic and many people have not been vaccinated. Keep yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy by continuing to follow CDC guidelines. Thank you!!

By necessity, BCMOW's number one priority is the safety of its staff & volunteers and of the hundreds of clients it serves. A vast majority of our Meals on Wheels recipients struggle with underlying medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and compromised immune systems, which can make them particularly vulnerable to any number of diseases, including this strain of novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.
