SOS (SUPPORT OUR SENIORS) PROGRAM
In March 2020, when the government demanded people to wear masks and practice social distancing because of the Corona Virus, our Town Supervisor, Ricky Newvine, came up with an idea to help the senior citizens of Fowler, thus came the birth of the SOS (Support Our Seniors) Program.
Through donations from individuals, we have been able to buy and deliver care packages to senior citizens 65 years and older. This program has grown from 42 households to 85 households that we deliver to.
In February 2021, we started a new food program, HAP (Hometown Assistance Program) at the Fowler Town Hall. The program is open to all residents of the Town of Fowler. On Thursdays from 9-12 and 1-4 people can come into the Town Hall and pick up groceries from the shelves. The HAP and SOS programs are available because of monetary and food donations from the public.
