Darien Police help Palmer’s deliver groceries for seniors, those in need
Darien Police officers assisted Palmer’s in delivering groceries to seniors and those in need on Monday. Sgt. Keri Isaac and Officer Chris Jimenez were on site picking up groceries from Cindy Palmer Monday afternoon.
Health experts have said seniors and those with underlying health issues are most vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.
Palmer’s Market has been offering a grocery delivery service for seniors and those who are medically compromised throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Volunteers are still need to “pick” the groceries and put them together at Palmer’s Market when requests come in. Volunteers are also needed to deliver them.
