Latronda Andrews-Perry, Senior Care Coordinator for Cobb Senior Services, accepts a $1000 donation from the East Cobb Lions Club Foundation to help more Cobb seniors participate in the Meals On Wheels program. Meals On Wheels provides a warm, nutritionally balanced meal 5 days a week to qualifying home bound seniors living in Cobb. Although no senior is denied services due to an inability to pay, funding can be an issue. Gifts such as these allow more seniors to participate.
Meals are not provided on county holidays, instead Cobb Senior Services relies on volunteer groups to “adopt” seniors and deliver meals on those days. For the past 27 years, the East Cobb Lions Club working with the Marietta Lions Club have assumed the responsibility for the entire program on Christmas Day, preparing and delivering over 125 meals.
