GREENBRIER COUNTY, W.V. – The employees of the Greenbrier County Commission on Aging have provided services to seniors in Greenbrier County throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
GCCA Employees have continued to deliver over 100 Meals on Wheels, and distribute 25-30 Grab n’ Go Meals, five days a week to Greenbrier County seniors. In addition, transportation has been provided for medical and other appointments, as well as home care services. These essential services are true lifelines for many seniors. Recently, the Senior Centers in Fairlea and Rupert were able to open their doors and welcome back seniors for lunch and some activities.
Taking care of people who take care of us, the Greenbrier County Democratic Women’s Club raised funds to recognize the important essential work of the GCCA employees and their commitment to seniors, who are some of our most vulnerable and isolated citizens. The Club presented the committee with $50 gift cards to either Jim’s Drive-In or Fruits of Labor for each of their 22 employees to show some small appreciation for their work on behalf of Greenbrier County Seniors.
Shown in the photo accepting the gift cards are Barbara Burdette, Patsy Hughart and Becky Durham from the Committee on Aging and Vicki Dove, Sarah Van Horn and Gloria Martin representing the Democratic Women’s Club.
