Delco Alert - May 19, 2020

Hello, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some reminders about coronavirus, free food distribution and this week’s Township Council meeting.

I want to express my heartfelt sympathies to those who have lost a loved one to coronavirus and, in general, to everyone whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic through financial insecurity or other hardships. This has been a really tough time for most of us and we’ll get through it together.

I am pleased to announce that Upper Darby township, in partnership with the Share Food Program, will be offering free boxes of food to township residents.

Food will be available for pick up on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting this Wednesday, May 20 and Saturday, May 23.

There will be two pick up locations and times:
-11:30am at the Municipal Parking Lot across from the Township building at 100 Garrett Road, and
-12:30pm at the 69th Street Playground on the 500 block of 69th Street.

You don’t need to bring ID, just show up. One box of food per household. This program will continue every Wednesday and Saturday through June at these locations. If you know a person or a family in need in your neighborhood, please spread the word.

I want to say a very special ‘Thank you’ to our friends at the Share Food Program for working with us and to all the volunteers who will be helping with the distribution.

This Wednesday, May 20th at 7pm is the next Township Council meeting. Full details of the meeting can be found at www.upperdarby.org. If you or someone you know is unable to watch on YouTube, please call 610-734-7625 for details of how to call into the meeting.

Public Comments should be submitted to Township Council at comments@upperdarby.org or by calling 484-393-5861. Be sure to include your name and address when submitting public comment so that it can be included in the record.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer reminding everyone to stay safe, stay home and if you have to go out, wear a mask and stay six feet apart. Thank you.
