The SAC Nutrition Center in Sallisaw is needing as many NEW plastic bags as possible for use in its senior citizens feeding program.
The bags, commonly used as shopping bags, come in handy at SAC, where they are used to hold meals for hungry senior diners.
Carol Thomas, who runs the nutrition center, said Monday that she and her staff “hope to open back up for dine-in service in July.”
Used shopping bags can not be acceptable due to sanitation reasons. The center is asking businesses and/or individuals to donate new bags. Many retailers sell the bags in bulk.
The center has been closed to in-person diners since the coronavirus pandemic hit the state more than a year ago. The group was quickly able to switch to takeout and delivery meal service to keep area seniors fed for the past year, providing a lifeline to elders in senior citizens in eastern Oklahoma.
