Meals on Wheels of Boulder resumes home delivery service
After a four day hiatus due to severe flooding last week, Meals on Wheels of Boulder has resumed home delivery service to our clients from temporary office and kitchen facilities at East Boulder Senior Center. All operations were evacuated on Monday afternoon.
According to executive director Francea Phillips, “The city of Boulder has been most gracious in making space available to accommodate kitchen and office personnel and volunteers. City staff has restored our phone and internet service, allowing us to set up near normal operations.
“We would be grateful for any donations to purchase food to replace that which we discarded when we evacuated. We expect to discard even more left in refrigerators and freezers when we return. In addition, we will need funds for new computers or computer repair, to replace damaged office supplies and who knows what else?”
West Boulder Senior Center and Café Classico are closed for up to two weeks. There will be no lunches served and no Tuesday night dinners until further notice. Meals on Wheels of Boulder will let the public know when conditions allow a return to West Boulder to resume operations as before. For status updates, please visit www.mowboulder.org. The public may donate on the website by clicking on the “Donate Now” button. The phone number is 303-441-3908 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The address at East Boulder Senior Center is located at 5660 Sioux Drive.
