Edinburg Mayor Helps Distribute Meals For Amigos Del Valle
EDINBURG, TEXAS (March 15, 2018)- Mayor Richard Molina helped prepare and distribute hot meals for Edinburg senior citizens Wednesday morning. Amigos Del Valle offers the service daily to more than 100 people in the City, and thousands more valley wide.
Amigos Del Valle is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the senior population in the Rio Grande Valley. The organization serves hot meals to seniors at various locations in Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy counties. The group also delivers meals to home bound senior citizens.
“We have a growing senior population here in Edinburg and we need groups like this to take care of them,” Molina said. “There are many people here in Edinburg who rely on this service.”
Molina visited with clients of the meal delivery service, as well as volunteer delivery drivers, and non-profit staff.
Amigos Del Valle hopes having the support from elected officials will help prevent federal funding cuts that are being considered for the national Meals on Wheels Association.
