The fact is that many Seniors are tucked away in their latter years. Many times forgotten, left alone. Want to know what it feels like? Well, Just take the current COVID-19 lockdown and the affects it has on your life no matter your age. It's been hard, anxiety sets in, fear takes control and the hope someone will just notice, notice you are still here. You are getting a little taste of what many Springfield area Seniors experience every day.
Making life worse for our Seniors is when something like COVID-19 happens. Seniors tend to suffer even more. Look at the Senior Death Rate, especially in nursing homes around the country. It's a crisis in itself.
Many seniors are limited in what they can do, l The money raised goes to buy and prepare Nutritious meals for Springfield area Seniors. These Seniors either than can't get out, are too scared to get out, or have no one to help them. Our Seniors pay nothing. The cost of the food, delivery and employees are paid by the Dew and the gofundme page through your donations.
The Dew Good Program, Food for Seniors, was designed and launched to help as many Seniors in Springfield, Illinois and surrounding communities as possible. We at the Dew were not sure how to do it. As you know the restaurant industry has been devastated by COVID-19. However, we had to come up with something to help our Seniors in our community so we turned to you.
The Dew set up a gofundme page (gf.me/u/xuqtgq) The money raised goes to buy and prepare Nutricious meals for Springfield area Seniors. These Seniors either can't get out, are too scared to get out, or have no one to help them. Our Seniors pay nothing. The cost of the food, delivery and employees are paid by the Dew and the gofundme page through your donations.
Each week we are finding the demand gets greater. We have added 8 delivery drivers to deliver meals every Tuesday at lunch time to Springfield area Seniors. We had to also add cooks. Please know, the Dew makes no profit off this program what-so-ever.
Today we prepared a really nice pasta dinner for Springfield area Seniors.
They were bagged up, and delivered by our Dew Good Team.
But funds are running low and we are turning to you, our community, to help us keep the Dew Good Food For Seniors Program alive and serving Springfield area Seniors in need until this crisis is over.
We know money is tight for many people. But If you can please make whatever donation you can by clicking here gf.me/u/xuqtgq.
You Really can. Together we can.

This program will continue as long as there are funds to cover it. We are a small company struggling ourselves just trying to do our part. Help our Seniors. This is why we need your help to ensure this program stays vibrate. Too many Seniors are counting on it. We've seen it first hand. We can't let them just be out of sight and our of our minds.
