Update on pandemic delivery services
DMCC’s mission is to support and serve Del Mar seniors so that they may age independently at home. In the midst of a public health crisis in which it is important to stay at home (especially for the seniors!), that meant rapidly shifting our operations to establish a free delivery service for groceries and donated essential supplies.
Deliveries began in earnest near the end of March. In less than two months, DMCC has supported over 50 senior Del Mar households with 126 grocery deliveries and 55 essential supply deliveries (toilet paper, disinfectants, face masks, etc).
People who use the service provide to us their grocery lists and are billed for their own groceries, but pay no delivery fee. The essential supplies are totally free. We are able to provide this service because of a generous community of neighbors and a partnership with the Del Mar Foundation.
All 65+ residents of 92014 qualify to receive DMCC pandemic delivery services. To request these services, please visit dmcc.cc/covid19 or call (858) 792-7565.
