Casper Cabs Offers Free Grocery Runs for Senior Citizens
Casper Cabs is providing free round-trip grocery runs for senior residents in Casper to help those residents as they cope with the restrictions during the ongoing novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, its owner said Friday.
"I'm just trying to give back to the community," Tom Elliott told K2 Radio News.
Elliott said he's been having a tough enough time shopping for groceries, and knows seniors are having even a tougher time as they shelter in place.
