    gofund.me/COG-seniors

     

    Hi,
    I'm trying to raise some money to rebuild the local Senior Nutrition Site in Camden on Gauley, WV.   We are a non-profit and I'm an employee of the center.  It was destroyed in the floods last week and we lost all of the items inside.  We are very much like meals on wheels but we only serve the elderly of our county.  Each county has its own Senior Nutrition Site.  We lost food, appliances, tables, chairs, utensils, coolers for transport,  etc.  Anything you can think of that would feed home bound seniors we had, and now it's all gone.

    I have not been able to find out how the seniors we were feeding each week are fairing after the flood,  and would like to see the center up and running again as quickly as possible to lessen the risk for those folks who don't have family to rely on in these extremely difficult times.  We have been feeding 40-60 home bound people a day from this center, plus another dozen who would come in each day.

    I would like to have donations to help us get at least some appliances (ie: 2 each of stoves, freezer, refridgerator, microwave, & 1 hot table).  It would be great if we could get utensils for the few who came in to eat, but the most important thing is being able to actually cook the food and keep it hot long enough to send it out.  If we raise enough to get all that and still have some left over it will be used to repair other parts of the center.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.
