Audrey Steiner met with the Board of Clearwater County Commissioners on Monday, Feb. 8, to discuss the Clearwater County Senior Citizens Inc. The Senior Meal Site provides two meals a week for individuals over 60 years of age within a 5-mile delivery radius of the center. The Center delivers 75 meals per week twice a week. The delivery drivers are on a voluntary basis. The Center also gives two $500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors, which at the time is not funded. COVID has majorly impacted their income.

Steiner is in the process of writing a grant application. She will be extremely grateful for any monetary help, including direction on COVID funds, a direct donation from Clearwater County or even individual donations.

The Board approved to donate to the Senior Meal Site.
