How A Local Business Helps Support Our Community

How A Local Business Helps Support Our Community

The outbreak of the coronavirus has affected nearly every country in the world and definitely has had a huge impact in Colorado and the Tri-Lakes area. With many local businesses having to temporarily close their doors or limit the services they provided, our own Senior Center felt the effects and choose to shut down for the safety of our senior citizens.

The shortage of toilet paper and other paper products that occurred is still perplexing! Luckily, Home Town Food Service, a local business right here in Monument came to the rescue. Normally serving about 25 local restaurants in the Tri-Lakes area and northern Colorado Springs with fresh produce and groceries, Home Town Food Service also felt the impact of the virus. Mitch Williams, the owner, decided to offer grocery services to our local community and allowed those who wanted to stay out of the big food store chains, to order fresh, delightful produce and other delicious items and pick them up outside his warehouse. The Senior Center hopped onboard taking individual orders with weekly grocery lists that were provided and Home Town delivered directly to the Senior Center where a mighty team of volunteers fulfilled food orders. Those who placed orders then drove to the center for pick-up and a volunteer would place the order in their car.

Silver Alliance cannot thank Mitch and his Home Town Food Service team enough for helping our community since the middle of March. Take advantage of this terrific service as it is still available at the Senior Center on a weekly basis. Please call Sue Walker, 719-330-0241 for more information.
