(Herndon Patch, May 26, 2020)

Keeping healthy while accomplishing life’s basic tasks is vitally important for area senior citizens. Fortunately, for those who reside in Herndon, Herndon Village Network (HVN) continues to make this a little easier by providing essential services, including:

  • Private transportation of healthy HVN members to “must do” doctor appointments, pharmacies, and grocery stores;
  • Pickup and delivery of ordered prescriptions and groceries, so that HVN members do not have to go into stores; and
  • Purchase and delivery of shelf-stable groceries to senior citizens residing at Herndon Harbor House and Kendrick Court Apartments.

As one recent recipient of a large tote bag of groceries shared:

I wanted to …tell you that there are a lot of adjectives that I could use to describe what I found in the bag— wonderful for that mask for sure and, wow, the toilet paper and paper towels and soap! …Everything is great. Well simply say it was a perfect gift, and thank you so much. It may be cloudy and not so nice outside, but the sunshine [is] in my apartment.
