Southern Torch Reaches Out to Help Seniors

By Marla Jones, Managing Editor •

DeKALB COUNTY, Ala. — Earlier this week, DeKalb County Commission President, Ricky Harcrow closed all DeKalb County Senior Centers for the safety of senior citizens, until April 6. 

Persons, 65 and older, as well as those with previous heart and lung diseases, are more vulnerable to Coronavirus.

The Senior Centers will continue their monthly Commodity Supplemental Food Program and will also deliver a box of shelf-stable meals once a week to those in need.

Southern Torch, in collaboration with DeKalb County Council on Aging Director Emily McCamy, is pleased to announce that they will partner with the DeKalb County Senior Centers to supply their paper to those who receive these meals. 

“We are pleased to partner with the local senior centers to give them our weekly paper,” stated Southern Torch Managing Editor, Marla Jones. “On behalf of myself and Distribution Manager, Marshall Stiefel, along with our entire staff, We understand that many will be home and will need a little ray of sunshine during this time. In the coming weeks, we will devote a page of activities especially for our seniors.”
