Meals-on-Wheels program director Jill Allen loads an SUV with donated food items. The food was donated by readers and Facebook friends of the Gering Citizen. Allen said she was impressed by the amount of food received and thanked Citizen publisher Lisa Betz for providing a drop-off point in Gering, noting that this was the first Snow Angel donation drive attempted by the organization. The program provides food to seniors in the Meals-on-Wheels program to ensure that participants receive meal assistance during difficult weather conditions when volunteers are unable to reach them.
