grant will help provide meal service to seniors | Latest news
The non-profit LOWLINC volunteer service in Locust Grove will be able to expand its meal preparation service for seniors at Lake of the Woods with a $ 1,000 grant, LOWLINC said in a press release this week.
American Woodmark Foundation’s $ 1,000 grant, headquartered in Winchester, paves the way for LOWLINC to better serve community members who are unable to prepare meals due to short-term issues resulting from proceedings medical, illness or injury, the release said.
“While finding LOWLINC volunteers to shop and cook for members is generally not a problem, this grant will allow LOWLINC to supplement its existing program with the ability to purchase take-out meals when needed,” said declared the association.
“Especially during this holiday period, we want to make sure that LOWLINC members who may need temporary help getting a good meal can get it,” LOWLINC Acting President John Beisheim said in a statement. “This grant will allow us to meet this important need of our members by having a ‘meal fund’ ready to use.
American Woodmark Corporation is one of the largest cabinet makers in the world, according to the LOWLINC press release. The factory in Orange County processes lumber and has a large kiln kiln. The American Woodmark Foundation has provided more than $ 6 million in support of community organizations in and around American Woodmark sites, the statement said.
