Licking, MO – Members of the Missouri Alliance for Retired Americans (ARA) recently delivered a truckload of food – canned goods, pastries, cake and bread – to the Licking Bridge Builders Senior Center, which feeds about 118 area residents each day.
The food was collected through a cooperative effort by Machinists District 9 and the Salvation Army in St. Charles.
It was the latest in a series of ARA food deliveries to the senior center in south-central Missouri.
The food deliveries show organized labor’s deep concern for all people — including senior citizens, said Dave Meinell, president of the Missouri Alliance for Retired Americans.
