The Voluntary Action Center of DeKalb County is continuing to deliver Meals on Wheels in DeKalb and LaSalle counties, despite the state’s shelter-in-place order. According to a news release, the Voluntary Action Center will also continue offering MedVAC and TransVAC services. Meals on Wheels will deliver to Voluntary Action Center client homes. TransVAC will take people to medical appointments and grocery stores in town. However, the center offices are closed to the public, and the number of people allowed in its facilities is limited. Volunteers are still being accepted, and those interested in helping should contact the center.

They are also asking for donations of brown paper bags or tokens of appreciation to be shared with the seniors they serve such as greeting cards, flowers, or gift bags of sundries and toiletries. You can also help VAC by checking out their Amazon Wishlist
