“I had COVID, and I was down. I had no energy whatsoever, and the whole family had it, so the people I would rely on couldn’t help; we were all quarantined. The testing facility put me in touch with WMCC. They asked me what I needed, and I just said soups and waters. But then they thought of things I wouldn’t have thought of, like shower soap. They brought it to my door and there was no contact whatsoever. This is a program that definitely cares and helps. If it wasn’t for this program, I don’t know how I would have survived the two weeks of quarantine. Everyone in my family is fully recovered and I am now vaccinated. I am so thankful.”
