LAKE COUNTY, CA (November 30, 2020) – For many of the nearly one quarter of Lake County residents aged 65 and above, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant simple things like acquiring food have required greater thought and planning.
Four Lake County Senior Centers have stepped up to meet unprecedented needs. On Monday, November 30, the County of Lake delivered checks totaling $96,582.28 to these four Senior Centers, located throughout the county:
• Lakeport Senior Center (provider of senior meal program services in the Lakeport, Kelseyville, Nice and Lucerne areas) was granted $28,687.59;

• Live Oak Seniors, Inc. (Clearlake Oaks), $17,287.31; and

“We are very grateful to the Lake County Board of Supervisors for their decision to share [the County’s] CARES Act funds with Senior Centers,” said Lake Family Resource Center and Lakeport Senior Center Executive Director, Lisa Morrow. “These funds will facilitate much needed meal support for our most vulnerable community members during the COVID-19 health emergency.”
