VCRC Helps Local Caregivers with Groceries
Updated: Aug 20
Funded by the CARES Act and provided by the Fresno Madera Area Agency on Aging, the Valley Caregiver Resource Center was able to provide 60 families that are clients with VCRC, a large supply of groceries during these unprecedented times.
The COVID-19 pandemic has plunged many of society’s most vulnerable into a situation where even weekly groceries can be a struggle to maintain.
VCRC’s Family Consultants personally called their caregivers and offered this service at no charge. From bread to canned foods, to snacks and many other non-perishable goods, caregivers from both Fresno and Madera were able to take part in this time of giving. “You have no idea how much you’ve helped me with this.” Caregivers were delighted to receive their grocery bundles and expressed their gratitude with tears of joy and appreciation.
