More July News!

Living Waters Assembly of God in Apalachicola delivered over 70 individual boxes of fruits and vegetables to Holy Family Senior Center.  Pastor Scotty Lolley and Pastor Thomas Webb, along with Caleb Lolley (Red shirt) and Caden Allen (blue shirt)  unloaded the trailer of food at Holy Family Senior Center for distribution to seniors on the lunch pick up and home bound delivery.  It is so wonderful to have the community come together during this time of COVID-19, to take care of our elders when the Center is closed, and to share food and friendship.  Caring for each other in this way is so appreciated by Elder Care Community Council and all the seniors that received this food.  
Maribeth Lowe is our most recent volunteer.  She assisted with passing out meals to the drive up seniors and also to the homebound seniors.  She says, “It’s a gift to be well enough and with time to do something for someone else. It is a simple way to show love and kindness.  It’s good for all of our souls and it feeds the spirit as well as our bodies.” More Volunteers are needed at Holy Family for about one hour per day to help with the drive up meals for seniors at The Center.  Contact is very quick and short while all precautions are taken to keep everyone at a safe distance. There is also the opportunity to deliver meals out to homebound, leaving the meal on their porch. If you can help us out, for an hour at lunch, please call Val Webb, President of ECCC, at 850-307-0116 or email us at ecccfranklin@gmail.com.  
ECCC has had another generous donation of hand sewn masks by Jane Broaddus, fiber artist. You may know Jane’s work from the old Bowery Gallery in Apalachicola where her hand sewn quilts graced the walls with their beauty.  She had previously donated over 15 Fidget Quilts intended for people experiencing dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.  If you or someone you know that is over ge 55 is in need of a fabric mask, please let us know.  ECCC encourages everyone to wear a mask when out and about as we all are navigating this COVID-19 way of life.  Please keep taking good care of yourself and reaching out to your neighbors, friends and family in safe ways to keep up with social contact which is so important for everyone’s mental health.  Keep in touch through FaceBook at ECCC- E Triple C or call us at 850-370-0116 with any questions or to let us know you or someone you know is in need.  We are all in this together.
