Urgent Request – COVID-19 PowerPaks for the Elderly

Charger PowerPaks is working hard to make a plan to continue feeding children during the school shutdown. In addition, we are having conversations about how we can use PowerPaks to also help the elderly and homebound in the West Noble area during the COVID-19 crisis. PowerPaks are perfect for senior citizens because the food is prepackaged, non-perishable, and ready-to-eat. We have spoken with the Noble County Council on Aging who wants to partner with us to make this happen. To make this possible, we need community support. We figure we could help feed 100 elderly/homebound individuals with one double-packed bag x 6 weeks for $3000.

WE HAVE ALREADY HAD ONE LIGONIER BUSINESS COMMIT TO $1000! Would you be willing to help make this happen? We cannot move ahead with planning unless we know we have the funding. **We need to order food by Monday, March 23, so please respond before that date.**

You can donate by clicking the Paypal link or mail a donation to P.O. Box 88, Ligonier, IN 46767. If you are part of a local business, church, or a concerned community member, please consider a donation. If you decide to give to this initiative, please send us a private message so we know immediately how much was given.

We will also need assistance in packing, delivering, and potentially fielding phone calls. Let us know if would you like to help in any of these ways.
