    COMMUNITY OUTREACH

    Groton Senior Center in collaboration with Town of Groton Police Department, Town of Groton Recreation Division and Groton Board Of Education Offices is proud to have brought the “Community First Dinner Program” to Groton. Our own fantastic Kathy Williams spearheaded the effort and never let up in creating this program to provide dinners twice a week to families and individuals struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Offering nutritionally balanced meals to the community at ZERO cost. The meal preparation, is headed by our own Lynnsie Manza, of our Coastal Café. The meals are prepared at the center and then individually packaged to be distributed at several meal sites in Groton. At this writing, over 1,400 dinners have been provided to Groton.

    After a lot of behind the scenes work and collaboration, Kathy Williams and Jennifer Meakem scheduled numerous volunteers and the program kicked off on June 3rd. The individual dinners are packaged up, delivered and then distributed Wednesdays and Fridays between 4:30pm and 5:30pm at the following sites: St. John’s Christian Church, TVCAA on Central Avenue, Charles Barnum School /now Beacon Point Homes (Gungywamp Road). A first come, first served basis most nights we had just enough meals or ran out early! Rain or shine! 🙂

    We are proud to announce many of the weeks meals were provided generously by Children First Groton Collaborative, William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund Covid Relief, Pfizer, Pepsi, Utz, Hartford HealthCare, Village Market, Paul And Angela McGuirk and a very large amount of generous people of our community who have donated to this cause. THANK YOU ALL!
