From Mayor Jim Strickland
During times of uncertainty, it is important to step in, do our part, and help where we can. I’m aware by issuing our Safer at Home Order and further extending it, we are making a difficult situation more complex to handle for those individuals already struggling to get by.
But, our COVID-19 Task Force is working hard to make sure that our elderly community, families and children in need don’t have to worry about finding their next meal.
Last week, we served 8,725 households in need of food. Yesterday, YMCA served 8,500 meals to Shelby County students, and three Mid-South Food Bank mobile pantries served 1,050 households. In addition, 559 registered seniors picked up meals, and another 1,146 registered seniors had meals delivered all through MIFA yesterday.
My heartfelt thanks go out to the hundreds of volunteers and donors who make this happen. We would not be able to do it without you.
With the extension of our Safer at Home Order, I just wanted to give you a quick update on the numbers of complaints and where we stand with compliance. To file a complaint against a business or person not in compliance with the Safer at Home Order, call 311.
