The Del Norte Senior Center has been cleared by Public Health to resume curbside pickup and home delivery of senior nutrition meals effective Wednesday, December 23, 2020. We were very fortunate that only the single staff member was positive. That person is recovering and will be back to work soon.
We would like to thank all the people who helped us to provide some food support to our neediest clients during this difficult week. Many thanks go to Amanda Hixson with Pacific Pantry, Kymmie Scott with Office of Emergency Services, Area 1 Agency on Aging, Humboldt Senior Resource Center, True North Organizing Network and all of the volunteers who helped pack and deliver holiday boxes last week.
We would also like to thank and apologize to those we were unable to serve. There have been many lessons learned during this time and we hope to be able to respond to future emergencies with less disruption.
Finally, please remember that we are all dependent on everyone doing their part to keep each other safe. Please, wear a mask, watch your distance and wash your hands. Have a safe and happy holiday season.
