Birches Roadhouse

We will be making a supply run to Sam's club this week to be able to provide essential services. That being said, if we can look after those who cannot or should not get out, let us do it for them.

The less people out the better. We would be happy to take on the task in an effort to reduce interaction.

We will scrub and sanitize the coolers before each trip. Sanitzize every item touched, gloves, masks the whole deal. Then we will personally deliver as much as we can safely haul.

We will continue to do this as long as there is a need.

Instead of dealing with dirty money we suggest paying for your groceries with a check.

Call us at Birches, 715-794-2486 to work out details...

Urgent help from all!

We have reached out to the Senior Center that used to serve the Cable area.

We are trying to compile a list of adults/seniors that would have benefited and rely on Meals for Wheels.

We will take on the task of ensuring we can reach as many of those affected by the cancelling of these services as possible.

Please help us compile a list by replying to this message. We want to run food to seniors and those in need tomorrow!

Please take 2 minutes and SHARE this!!!!

Lakewoods Resort currently works with the Bayfield County for Meals on Wheels within the cable Grandview and Drummond area to my knowledge that is still existing in the area and Lakewoods will continue to do it throughout this crisis and would be more than happy to extend it to anyone that cannot is not part of the program. The cable Lions Club has been delivering all the meals and I am assuming that they are still going to continue to do this if not liquids will be still continuing to deliver the meals to the seniors

The senior resource center of Sawyer County might be able to connect you, they are very responsive to their general email. MOW in Sawyer is still continuing but I know everyone appreciates every bit of help right now!

Its bayfield country senior resource center. Which meals come out of Ashland. You can call their center and try that

Contact the Cable Lions Club for a list of meals on wheels participants in the cable area.

Do you need delivery help?? PS- this is Brooks’s mom!!
