#GivingTuesday 2020 - Jennifer Szubielak from Copper Country Senior Meals

This podcast is a part of our Giving Tuesday series and today we talked with Jennifer Szubielak from Copper Country Senior Meals. Copper Country Senior Meals is a home delivered and congregate meal service. The meals are designed to provide 33% of the daily nutritional requirement. For people 60 and over that are able to drive, congregate meal sites are situated throughout the area, providing an opportunity for social interaction. For homebound seniors, ‘meals on wheels’ are available. This vital service not only provides a hot meal, but also a visit from a dedicated delivery person. Meals and milk can be opened, and if a senior is not home, or able to open the door, we call an emergency contact to be sure of the senior’s wellbeing. Often, this is the only social contact the homebound have, and it is very important for them to have a connection with the world outside. Donations are being accepted through December 1st.
