May 21, 2020

Today, Mayor Tim Keller joined the dedicated team of City workers who have served more than 121,700 meals to seniors as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Mayor helped deliver meals and care packages to homebound seniors, kicking off an effort to get 500 care packages out to the community. The packages were either donated by Western Sky Community Care or purchased through an anonymous donation.

“Our City is rising to the challenge of COVID-19 and looking out for our most vulnerable neighbors. I’m grateful to everyone who has stepped up to donate to seniors and to our staff who are working so hard to support them,” said Mayor Tim Keller.

“Senior Affairs has received an outpouring of support over the past two months—from donations of needed items and money to notes of encouragement—and we continue to pass along that support to the seniors we serve,” said Anna Sanchez, Director of Senior Affairs.

The care packages contained shelf-stable food items and snacks; personal care items such as lotion and facial tissues; and cleaning supplies such as laundry detergent. For information on Senior Affairs services, including meals, call the Senior Information Line at 505-764-6400.
