Special Delivery For Crisfield Seniors Affected By The Storm

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Seniors affected by Superstorm Sandy got such much needed relief Tuesday.

Staff with the Maryland Department of Aging set their sites on one of the most hard hit areas on the shore: Crisfield. They delivered food, blankets and household necessities to elderly residents there. During their visit, the staff took the time to talk with residents and help address other issues they may have.

"We are going to try to address as much as we can. Some of their needs, and then we're going to make those referrals to MEMA as we move through the community," said Gloria Lawlah, Secretary of Maryland Department Of Aging.

They also say this wont be their last visit. Officials say they plan to come back in a couple months and check on home-bound seniors.
