Did you hear?

Fraud alert

“Living Well” scam.

A phone scam is taking place under the name “Living Well Grant Funds.”?Targeted persons receive a phone call asking them to complete a grant application, provide their cell phone number, and then wire money through Western Union.? They are told they will receive a call on their cell phone, notifying them when it is time to pick up their “grant” funds at Western Union.? In one example, the targeted persons were told to wire $149 up front so they could later receive $6,520.?

If you receive a call of this nature, it should be reported to the state Attorney General’s office and to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Link to the FTC’s online report form:? www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/.

Volunteers needed

We are in need of volunteers to deliver meals to our homebound once a week. We also need substitute volunteers to cover when our regularly scheduled volunteers are unavailable. Call Musetta at 264-2167.

Bus service

We have a Senior Bus that runs Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Get your errands done, join in the fun at the Silver Foxes Den, go grocery shopping or get to your medical appointment, all by simply riding the bus and not relying on others to get you around town. Available for those 60-plus. Suggested donation $2 per day. Call Rob Gaston at 264-2167 for details.

Services

Are you homebound or know someone who is? Let the Silver Foxes Den help you with your meals. We have expanded our service to the more rurally isolated areas of the county and would like to help you help yourself.

These meals are the same meals prepared in our kitchen by the same cooks who prepare those scrumptious senior center meals. Our hot meal home-delivery program remains available to those closer to town four days per week, with frozen meals on Thursdays and weekends. Meals are available to people age 60-plus for a suggested donation of $3 per meal. Give Rob or Musetta a call at 264-2167 for further information.
