The Seneca County House of Concern announced that Seneca Meadows, Inc. has made several donations between April and July to provide additional assistance to make up for the added demand from the community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Seneca Meadows constantly checked in with us over the last several months to see how they could continue to help meet the increased use of the food pantry,” said House of Concern executive director Delores Morgan. “SMI has been a steady partner with us for more than a decade, and they really stepped up in this extraordinary time of need.”
The local economy has been devastated in the efforts to tamp down the adverse health impacts of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, and there has been a tremendous increase in demand for food and other supplies such as diapers, toiletries and other daily necessities.
The mission of the Seneca County House of Concern is to help those in need with basic necessities such as food, clothes and household items and to treat everyone with dignity and respect. The Seneca County House of Concern has been a source of assistance for people in difficult situations for 49 years.
The thrift store at the House of Concern has reopened and is following health department guidelines on safety, sanitation, and social distancing.
Hours are Monday – Friday 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
