Bank gives new wheels for senior citizen meals van
Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union recently assisted the Senior Citizens Program of Wilson County by purchasing new tires for the vehicle used to deliver meals to senior citizens in the area.
Betty Manak, the Senior Citizen Program coordinator, and her team deliver meals to seniors within a 75- to 100-mile radius around Floresville five days a week. New tires were needed to continue their deliveries, and Manak reached out to her friends at the credit union. Within 24 hours, Manak was able to purchase the tires through a donation from RBFCU.
The tires were purchased from Ancira Ford in Floresville, which offered the lowest cost and did not charge labor.
In addition, the Escamilla family generously donated a wheel rim for the same delivery van.
The Senior Citizens Program, located at 1519 Third St. in Floresville in the Knights of Columbus Hall, has served Wilson County for about 45 years. The center offers activities and serves lunch Monday through Friday. Volunteers also deliver meals to those who need assistance.
For more information, call the Senior Citizens Center at 830-393-6070.
