Volunteers and grocery stores across Hardy County are working together to help seniors and the homebound stay healthy and get groceries during the COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing and stay-at-home orders from West Virginia Governor Jim Justice.
The Moorefield Ministerial Association, the Old Fields Baptist Church, the Lost River-Mathias Ministerial Association and the East Hardy County Elves in Wardensville have organized volunteers to help deliver groceries for those who can’t or shouldn’t leave their homes. Organizer Fran Welton said the Moorefield and Old Fields group are up and running. The other areas of the county will follow shortly.
“Folks who need help can call the Moorefield Presbyterian Church between 9 a.m. and noon, and request a volunteer,” Welton said. “The volunteer will pick up the groceries at WalMart and deliver them to the front porch of the home.”
The recipient has already ordered the groceries and paid with a credit or debit card, so no money exchanges hands.
