Editor's Note:
I just applied some of this "Fluid Film" to the underside of my 20-year-old Ford pickup truck and I'm very happy with the results.  You may have heard about folks who spray used motor oil on the underside of their vehicle to stop rust, and it works, but it's dirty.  This "Fluid Film" is a non-toxic alternative that anyone can put on their vehicle.  Unlike traditional undercoating, this is a light coating of oil that penetrates and protects your vehicle if it's already starting to rust.  If your car is brand new then I would suggest rubberized undercoating.  Otherwise Fluid Film is probably the way to go!

Basic Crime Prevention

Practice crime safety measures that eliminate opportunities for criminals. Encourage others to join in crime prevention efforts. Aid others when they become victims of crime. Work for a better and safer neighborhood through protecting and honoring the rights of others.  

Important: The purpose of a community watch is to help the police do their jobs.  Do not be a vigilante.  

 

Disaster Preparedness & Resiliency

Learn skills to prepare for man-made and natural disasters. Local, state and the federal government do a lot to prepare for disasters, but neighbors need to be ready to care for each other.

 

Build a Stronger Community

In our fast-paced world, we don’t spend enough time learning about our neighbors.  Watch groups give community members a reason to get together and talk about making their community a better place.  Neighborhood Watch activities are a fun way for community members to get to know each other while making a difference.

For many of our clients, pets offer 24/7 companionship. A pet may be the only “family” a client has.

In January 2009, we began providing pet food to clients needing assistance feeding their pets. The program arose after volunteers began reporting clients were sharing their Meals on Wheels food with their pets, thereby compromising their own nutrition and good health. Currently our volunteers graciously deliver food to 24 dogs and 36 cats on a monthly basis. We typically can provide one to two weeks’ supply of dog and cat food, sometimes more depending on our current stores of donated pet food. 

Continuation of these deliveries depends on community support and donations. Financial donations for pet food should be so designated. Our greatest need is for wet and dry cat food and wet dog food. We ask for unopened canned or dry dog or cat food that is not expired.  Cans should not be dented and bags should not have holes. Food can be dropped off Monday – Friday from 10 AM to 3:30 PM, or call the office to arrange for pickup.

If you wish to conduct a pet food drive on our behalf,

You must be a current Meals on Wheels client to participate in this program.

Our greatest need is for dry dog food and dry cat food.
