Because of the threat of COVID-19 spreading within our community, The Golden Hub will be closed to all activities and social gathering until further notice in order to reduce contact with and among our senior population. Dining within our center will be temporarily suspended, but we will offer to-go drive through meals during this time on Mondays from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. You will receive 1 hot meal and 4 frozen meals. If you would like to pick up meals, call the center at 997-7131 by Friday the week before.
Meals on Wheels will continue to be delivered Monday-Friday. Deliveries will be made by the staff in a non-contact fashion for the safety of our seniors and staff. if you are 60 or older, homebound, or recovering from an illness and need a hot, nutritious meal call Stephanie at 997-7131.
We request a donation of $5 per meal for those 60 and over, however any amount is appreciated, and no senior will be denied service if they are unable to donate. If you are under 60 the cost is $6 per meal.
Since we are currently offering curbside pickup to our seniors who were enjoying meals in our dining room, those meals are no longer eligible for funding from the Older Americans Act Funds because they are no longer considered “Congregate Meals”. We would like to thank our seniors for their contributions to the cost of their meals and for being so understanding during this time. Since we are no longer receiving funding for the remaining cost of each of these meals, we will have to find other funding resources.
Thank you to those who have generously sent in donations the past few weeks to help during this crisis and thank you to H-E-B for pledging a $7,000 grant to help us feed our seniors in Gillespie County.
