On October 2, MNRAAA staff participated on a conference call with Senator Amy Klobuchar. Senator Klobuchar asked how we are working with older adults in Southwest Minnesota to ensure that they have adequate food, care and also how we are working to prevent social isolation. To do this we also invited some of our partners to participate. They included Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, Central Community Transit, Wellspring Faith in Action and A.C.E. of Southwest Minnesota.
Each organization was able to discuss how they were able to shift their work to meet the new demands created by the pandemic.
