Senior Centers closed; Meals on Wheels continues, Volunteers Needed

by Berks Encore

Mar 19, 2020

Until further notice, all Berks Encore Senior Community Centers are closed for senior activities including bingo, cards, crafts, exercise and lunch.

Any center participant that has ordered a meal, will be able to pick up “takeout” between 10:00 a.m.-12 noon Monday through Friday.

Seniors aged 60+ must contact the senior center closest to them 2-3 days ahead of time to order meals and be able to pick up the meal between 10 a.m. – noon.

Meals on Wheels will continue to provide home delivered meals Monday through Friday for the homebound seniors in our community.

Any volunteer who is able to help pack or deliver meals from any of our centers: Birdsboro, Fleetwood, Mifflin, Reading, Strausstown, or Wernersville, please reach out to the center of your choice. Phone numbers and locations provided here
