A question. Why is the seniors meals being cut off? I was just informed by the delivery team that they are only be bringing one more then that's it. What is the reason....no money? Or no cooks? Or just no more senior programs. Which is it?
does anyone know where i can get a fabric mask for my 87 yrs old mother?
Does Wabano accept good clean used clothing for the community? If so, who do I contact? Baamaapii.
