On a rainy Monday, Lisa Mahmoodjanloo and dozens of other volunteers delivered large boxes of food and supplies to 56 people, which is nearly every person at the Roscoe Dunjee Senior Living Center in Spencer.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Is Another Relief Payment Coming?

“You can see them through the screen door, waving and smiling,” Mahmoodjanloo said. “Even though it’s raining, we can still put a smile on their face.”
“I could see lots of the seniors at their windows and doors just waving, so it added that little bit of excitement to this very not bright day,” volunteer Debra Ingraham said.
The volunteers said they will continue to deliver food and supplies every few weeks as long as supplies last.MORE NEWS: Demetrius Hollins Sues Gwinnett Police, Former Chief And County In 2017 Brutality Case
