Our Meals on Wheels program that serves Freeburg, Smithton and Millstadt is in grave jeopardy, as well as Millstadt Congregate and Transportation programs.
Gov. Bruce Rauner is withholding our federal funds as well as not budgeting any future state money for this purpose. Without these meals and our daily wellness checks, people will start dying because of lack of nutrition and the personal contact we have with them.
Please consider making a donation or allocating funds from your group to help this very vulnerable group of people. Your help in contacting Gov. Rauner and Speaker of the House Michael Madigan expressing to them how important this program is in your community.
We vote for our lawmakers and put our trust in them to take care and preserve our programs that help us exist and not to let us die.
Never miss a local story.
