Masks, meals to go to Bethel seniors
BETHEL — Masks and meals will be distributed to local senior citizens on Wednesday morning.
Beginning at 10 a.m., seniors will drive through the parking lot in the back of the municipal center to get the items, said Lisa Plumb, director of the Bethel Senior Center.
The center has been offering two grab-and-go meals on Wednesday mornings since late March or early April, Plumb said. The food comes from CW Resources, an organization that supports people with disabilities and provides meals to various senior centers.
But this is the first time masks will be distributed, thanks to a donation of 900 of these items, Plumb said. Former Republican State Rep. Dan Carter helped acquire the donation, she said.
About 180 afghan kits donated from a group in Cheshire will also be given away, Plumb said.
The meals include a main entree, fruit, dessert and usually snack, Plumb said. About 30 seniors usually pick up the meals, she said.
