Andrea Macon Urges Community Donations to Common Ground

Common Ground, which runs the Amador County Meals on Wheels program as well as transportation services for seniors and veterans, delivers meals to about 300 seniors in Amador County. They are desperately in need of funding.

According to Bailey McKeehan, Senior Nutrition Coordinator at Common Ground, due to federal budget cuts, the slow down in donations, and the rise in rent at their offices, Common Ground has had to cut a number of programs in the last year. Starting July 1st, they are eliminating hot meal and fresh meal delivery and going to all frozen food deliveries in Amador County. They've chosen to go to frozen foods rather than eliminate clients.

More details are available in this video presentation at the Board of Supervisor's meeting from March. (Issue starts at about 50:00).

The delivery of daily meals is certainly about ensuring that homebound seniors are not hungry, but it is also about daily contact and company with other people. It is about someone checking in every day to make sure our seniors are healthy and well.

I will be donating to the Common Ground program via this link: https://commongroundseniorservices.org. Please join me in supporting this valuable resource to our seniors and our community, and donating to Common Ground.

Thank you.
Andrea Macon
