There were a lot of smiles at the Hagerman Valley Senior and Community Center on Monday the 7th of December when they received a check for a thousand dollars from the Wal-Mart Community Grant Program to be used for the meal home delivery program. Those in the Hagerman Valley who are not able to get to the center can receive hot, fresh meals three days a week, plus frozen meals appropriate for the microwave, delivered to their doors by a few dedicated volunteers. To determine eligibility for free meals, or simply get meals delivered for a fee, call the Office on Aging in Twin Falls at 736-2212.
Chairman of the board of directors, Connie Flinders, said that the Wal-Mart store in Jerome approved the grant application and that the whole community is very grateful for their support, as the seniors and homebound are a valuable part of this community. She encouraged everyone to stop by the Customer Service desk at the Jerome Wal-Mart and give them a quick “thanks”.
