As the coronavirus progresses, senior citizens across the country, are at a great risk due to this life threatening disease. Police officers in New Jersey are going out of their way to deliver groceries to elderly people who are running low on supplies.

The Sayreville Police Department shared a post about this initiative, “Today we were able to help many Senior Citizens who were running low on supplies,” the department wrote on Facebook. “It is a reassuring feeling when everyone in the community comes together and supports each other. We also want to thank all of those in our Facebook community who have offered to help.”

80 percent of deaths from COVID-19 are people over the age of 65. “It’s scary for them to even come out of the house,” Lt. James Novak said. “We saw the issue and we worked with some local food pantries and just said ‘hey, how can we help’?”

With a majority of the food delivered being donated by local nonprofits. The police department said, “We want to thank the Sayreville Care and Share food pantry, Our Lady of Victories food pantry, and The First Presbyterian Church of Sayreville for all of your donations.”

Verse of the Day

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
