Yesterday was International Pi Day, Mission Point of Greenville celebrated with BINGO at the Montcalm County Commission on Aging .

Partner Spotlight: Our Older Americans Act partner Montcalm County Commission on Aging has been working diligently to ensure their older adults have meals during this time, and sometimes this means getting a little creative! Meal delivery driver Phil Edwards thought of this clever solution for the extra coolers that were needed to hold food. The CoA has been conducting fewer deliveries each week to limit physical contact, so the meal distributions are larger than normal, therefore Phil added a trailer to the back of his car to accommodate the additional food load. We are thankful to have such dedicated partners!
