This COVID-19 information was shared by ELGL member Katie Walpole, a Senior Management Analyst with Clark County, Nevada:
Clark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick and community partners launched a pilot called Delivering with Dignity to bring high-quality meals directly to the most vulnerable families in the Las Vegas Valley, keeping them and the community safe by reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
The Delivering With Dignity service is intended for people struggling with poverty on a daily basis who are most at risk according to U.S. Center for Disease Control guidelines for contracting coronavirus if they leave their homes including the elderly, those with underlying medical conditions and their family members living in the same household.
Organizers say potentially tens of thousands of local residents could fall within those guidelines, and they are working with nonprofit organizations in the community to identify and provide service to the entire population in-need in the Las Vegas Valley.
Financial donations to Delivering with Dignity are being accepted at The Moonride Foundation, moonridgefoundation.org. To request service from the program or to inquire about volunteering, contact the United Way of Southern Nevada at (702) 892-2301 or by email at: [email protected].
